This is a 3-hour, on-bike class for adults and mature teens who have recently learned how to ride a bike or who want to improve their core cycling skills. 

You’ll learn how to adjust your helmet for a safe, comfortable fit, choose an appropriately-sized bike, adjust the seat, perform a simple mechanical inspection to ensure the bike is road-ready, start and stop with confidence, shift gears, scan and signal, and navigate around common road hazards.
