Learn to Ride: Small Group Class For Adults (For Pre-Reserved Groups Only)

This 45-minute session begins the process of getting adults to roll on their own wheels and within their own comfort zones WITHOUT training wheels or someone pushing from behind. The method CBC uses is known as the kinder, gentler side of cycling! Once you get your balance, you’ll go on to learn starting, stopping, and steering — time permitting. More sessions may be necessary. However, participants are able to take our balancing technique and use it on their own time. This class has a 1:6 ratio of instructors to students.

Course Fee: Depends on the size of your group. Please call us for the details. Participants must have a helmet and a bicycle in good working order. Full-fingered gloves are highly recommended. For the purposes of this class, students should be able to stand flat-footed while mounted on their bikes. A non-refundable, transferable booking fee is required before the first session.
