Confident Riding for Returning Adult Riders – September 2023
September 2 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Been out of the saddle for a while? Let’s get back on!
This free workshop for returning adult riders is geared towards bicycle riders who want to boost their confidence to ride in the neighborhood, to ride with their community, and to ride on their own.
Topics covered will include
- Pre-ride bike check
- Strong starting and safe stopping
- Scanning, signalling, and turning
- Assessing conditions when riding
Who should take this class?
This class is designed for adult students who know how to ride a bike and want to increase their riding confidence after some time away from riding. Bike Fun has limited bicycles and helmets to use for students who need them. If you need a bicycle or helmet, we have limited quantities available – just let us know on the registration form!
What should I bring?
If you have a bicycle to ride that is in safe working condition, please bring it! (Not sure if it’s in safe working condition? Bring it to a local bike shop for a once-over before the workshop. We cannot repair bicycles on site.)
Bring a snack and some water. Bathrooms are available on site as needed.
Other class details
We will work in the front parking lot and then apply the skills we learn during a short neighborhood ride.
Class size is limited to 10 participants.
This class is free and open to the public. Donations to Bike Fun are welcome if you’d like to contribute to our programming and outreach!
