NYC Parks and Bike New York are proud to present Learn to Ride classes. In these free classes, we’ll teach children the fundamentals of bicycling, preparing them for years of safe and confident riding.

This class teaches a safe, easy, effective way to learn to ride. Using this “balance first” method, parents help get their children rolling while the child does most of the work. Participants learn the basics of balancing, starting, stopping, and steering a bike. Most people learn to ride their bike while taking the class, but even if they don’t, they will leave with an easy, hands-free, crash-free, and low-stress way to learn to ride.

Participants must bring their own bike and helmet. To register, please visit the Bike New York webpage.

Seeds are amazing little packages that move by rolling on the ground, flying through the air, floating in water or "hitching" a ride on passerby’s. We will take a hike to look for seeds in their many forms from acorns to pinecones to walnuts. Using our high-powered microscopes, we will then take a closer look to discover how these amazing seeds can move and grow into new flowers and trees.

This program is designed for ages 8 and up and their adult chaperones and is sponsored by Councilwoman Debi Rose. Meet at the Nevada Avenue entrance to High Rock Park. Registration required.
