Limited Capacity seats available

Rich Conroy, Education Director for Bike New York, will introduce their Adult Learn to Ride curriculum and what makes the program unique. Bike New York's Learn to Ride - Adult class is described as: "a free class for adults and mature teens who are ready to ride. Doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 80, we’ll get you rolling in no time. With our safe, easy, effective method, Learn to Ride students learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike, as well as adjust a helmet for proper fit. Most people learn to ride in one session, but even if they don’t, they’ll leave equipped with an easy, low-stress way to teach themselves—or, they can join us for another free class!"
