A “Learn to Bike” Class … For Adults

Adults on bikes

Not everyone learns to ride a bicycle as a child. But it?s never too late to learn and join your family on their outings. The West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance is holding a special ?learn to bike? class for adults of all ages (as well as mature teens) on Sunday April 29. We will use the same pedal-free balance technique that works so well in our ?learn to bike? classes for children. The class will be held between 10 a.m. and noon in the Vaughn Drive parking lot off Alexander Road (by the Princeton Junction train station) and is free.

Most people learn to ride their bikes while taking the class, but even if they don?t, they leave with an easy, crash-free, and low-stress way to teach themselves to ride. You can read about a Bike New York class here (they taught us!)

Just bring a bike and helmet. You must be able to rest your feet flat on the ground while sitting on the bicycle seat. If you don?t have a bike, please tell us so we can make arrangements. No helmet? The WWBPA sells them for just $10.

This is a small class and participants must pre-register via [email protected]

This is not a class for those who know how to bike but want to become more confident cyclists. The West Windsor Recreation Department is offering a class for you in May called Traffic Skills 101. The WWBPA will offer a ?learn to bike? class for kids in June. Watch for details.
