20-Minute Consulting Call: Are you a DIYer who just needs a little back-up and support? Wondering how to teach your loved one how to ride a bicycle? Have questions on how to get better at riding? Do you need some tips and tricks or cheerleader support for your first triathlon or your first 100-mile ride? Or, do you have other questions you would like answered without any more waiting?
This 20-minute consulting call is probably enough of a boost to get your questions answered and get you well on your way!
With CBC, all coaching fees include the following: a private consultation; a personalized assessment; a short video-tape review – upon request and where applicable; and follow-up support via e-mail. (Bike rental and travel fees are additional.)
2-Hour Private Learn to Ride Classes: You or your loved one will work one-on-one with Coach Lee — and within your comfort zone — to get rolling on two wheels!
*Please note that if you are buying a session for a loved one, he or she MUST express an interest in learning how to ride a bicycle. A properly fitted helmet is mandatory. Each type of session ends at the allotted time or whenever a student becomes tired — whichever comes first! Sessions are non-transferable, and there is no rollover time if a lesson ends early. Travel fees and bike/helmet rental fees may apply. This private class is non-refundable because when your session is scheduled, we block off that time just for you.
(Should any student show an unwillingness to proceed or have a tantrum during a session, the lesson will end with no refunds. While CBC REALLY does want to provide rider education services to your loved one, it’s most important that everyone has a positive experience – riding a bicycle is not an imperative skill that should ever be forced upon a person, no matter the age. Learning how to ride a bicycle should be a fun activity, not a forced one. : )
*For scheduling purposes, additional sessions may be necessary so allow plenty of time to learn and practice before a planned bicycling event.
– BASIC Class: 2 Hours
You or your loved one will get started on the process of learning how to transfer balance to a bicycle.
(For children under the age of 18 years, there is no drop-off for a basic session. However, for an additional fee, drop-off is possible.)
