Adult Learn to Ride Workshop

Sunday, September 16 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Free

You’re never too old to learn to bicycle!┬áInstructors will work one-on-one to teach 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.

Even if you don’t have a bicycle, we will send information on how and where to rent one for the class. The cost of bike rental (if needed) will be covered by you, the participant.

Please contact Christopher White (christopher@sfbike.org) with any questions about this program.

This project is made possible by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority through a grant of Proposition K Local Transportation Sales Tax Funds.
