Learn to Ride 9/13 - Arlington, VA

This 3-hour class is designed to teach adults how to ride a bike. We start by teaching balance, and then each rider proceeds at their own pace through starting/stopping, pedaling, and turning.

Our technique is fun, intuitive, and very successful! But it also will take hard work! Please wear comfortable clothes, and bring along some water, a snack, and weather-appropriate outerwear.

This class is for you if:

  • You are at least 18 years old.
  • You have never tried to learn how to ride a bike, or:
  • You have tried to learn and have not been successful.

A rental bike and helmet for the day are included with your reservation. Be sure to provide your height in feet and inches so that we can provide you with a bicycle that fits you.
