Adult Learn to Ride Class/成年人学习骑自行车课

Saturday, August 15, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


It’s never too late to learn to bicycle! Instructors will work one-on-one to assist participants in learning the basics of balancing, starting, stopping and steering a bike, as well as proper helmet fit and adjustment. Most people learn to ride their bike while taking the class, but even if they don’t, they will leave with tips to continue teaching themselves to ride.

  • The first step will be balancing on your bicycle; instructors will first remove the pedals and lower the seat enough so that you can put both feet on the ground.
  • You’ll learn balance by taking longer and longer steps until you’re “gliding.”
  • Then, once you’ve got that down, we’ll show you how to turn confidently and stop smoothly.
  • Once you feel comfortable, we’ll reinstall the pedals, so you can incorporate pedaling and learning to steer, and how to steer precisely in circles and figure-eights.
  • You’ll finish your lesson by learning how to shift gears so you can handle hills and prepare for more city riding.

Please be sure you can sit on your bike seat with both feet flat on the ground.

At this time, this class is limited to people 18 years old and above.

All participants MUST either bring a bike or rent a bike in advance. Bikes will not be available for rental at the class. If you don’t have a bicycle, you will be contacted before the class with information on how to rent one. If the cost of a rental ($20) presents a financial burden please contact Eliana (eliana@sfbike.org/‪415-409-9416‬). 

This class will be taught in English and Mandarin.

Please contact Eliana Marcus-Tyler (eliana@sfbike.org/‪415-409-9416‬) with any questions about this program.

Please note: By providing your name and contact information through registration, you are consenting to this information being used for contact tracing should that become necessary.


学习骑自行车永远不会太晚! 教师将一对一教导,以帮助参与者学习平衡,启动,停止和操纵自行车的基础知识,以及正确的头盔安装和调整方法。大多数人在上课时都会学习骑自行车,但是即使他们没有,他们也会留下一些小窍门,继续自学骑车。

  • 第一步是平衡您的自行车; 讲师将首先卸下脚踏板并降低座椅足够的高度,以便您可以将双脚放在地面上。
  • 您将采取越来越长的步骤来学习平衡,直到您“滑行”为止。
  • 然后,一旦您了解了这一点, 我们会告诉你如何自信地转向和平稳停车。
  • 一旦你感觉很舒服,我们将重新安装踏板,这样你就可以将踩踏和学习转向,以及如何精确地以圆圈和八字形转向。
  • 您将通过学习如何换档来完成本课程,以便处理山丘并为更多的城市骑行做准备。

您的自行车足够短,以使您坐在座椅上时, 双脚可以舒适地搁在地面上。


如果您没有自行车,在上课之前,您将被联系有关如何租用一辆自行车的信息. 不幸的是,三藩市自行车联盟目前无法负担租金。
