Our programs are designed to help you achieve your cycling goals, whether it's to learn to ride a bike for the first time, ride for fun, fitness, or transportation. I offer learn to ride classes for children and adults. Small Learn to Ride classes (no more than 6 riders) first provide students with instruction on how to balance on a bike, then after achieving "the glide", how to pedal.  I also offer a full range of individualized instruction on bike riding skills for transportation and recreation, including hazard avoidance, lane positioning, signaling turns, rules of the road, etc. Contact me at for more info.
