Bike Skills 101: Learn to Ride – Adults is a free class for adults and mature teens who are ready to ride.

Whether you’re 18 or 80, we’ll get you rolling in no time. With our safe, easy, effective method, Learn to Ride students learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike, as well as adjust a helmet for proper fit. Most people learn to ride in one session, but even if they don’t, they’ll leave equipped with an easy, low-stress way to teach themselves—or, they can come back for another free class!

Links to register for Bike Skills classes will be posted 7–10 days in advance of each class; check Bike New York’s registration page for links to register and please note that spaces are limited.

Bike Skills 101 is presented in partnership with Bike New York, an organization that empowers New Yorkers to transform their lives and their communities through bicycling by increasing ridership, empowering youth to lead healthy and productive lives, removing barriers to cycling and advocating for and expanding services to reach more New Yorkers.
