Spring bike class sessions
The free 30-min classes are customized just for you! We can help you learn how to: start biking again, ride safely in traffic, ride a bike, ride without training wheels, or use your gears to make riding easier and more fun. Classes will be held at the new Suttree Landing Park, 701 Langford Ave (near Island Home).
Sign up here for sessions on April 29 and May 6. After the free session, if you or your child need more instruction, we offer classes at your convenience: $10 for 30-min or $15 for 1 hour (shorter classes are best for younger kids). Just email to request a class.
