Learning to Ride a Bike is an Essential Life Skill

Have summer travel plans?

How about any that involve TWO wheels?

This summer, NYC Parks and Bike New York are partnering together to provide NYC children, ages five and up, with FREE bike riding classes in City parks.

Bike Skills 101: Learn to Ride,” is a free two-hour group class that has been designed for children who are ready to ride bicycles without training wheels. Featuring experienced teachers and traffic-free environments, each class provides students with the instruction they need to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer their bicycles. Most students get the hang of it in one session; those that need more than one class are provided with easy, low-stress techniques that will get them riding independently before long.

To participate in these classes, children will need a helmet and a bicycle that is in good working order.

To learn more about the City’s Learn to Ride events for children, visit the NYC Parks website and register for any of their upcoming classes, including:
