More New Cyclists

About 22 kids attended the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance’s “learn to bike” class at the farmers’ market this month, and we are delighted that most learned to ride without training wheels that day.

This was our third class for kids since we began holding sessions last spring, and we once again thank Bike New York for teaching us this simple method: remove training wheels and pedals, get kids scooting and lifting their feet off the ground until they master balance, reintroduce the pedals, show them how to start and stop, and let them start riding.

    We will announce our classes via our website and Facebook page, and send out announcements to local PTAs and newspapers. Bike New York offers regular classes, as does Bike Walk Montclair.
