Our annual learn-to-bike class happens June 1

It’s time to sign up for the WWBPA’s once-a-year Learn to Bike class for kids.

This year the popular class will be held on Saturday, June 1 at the West Windsor farmers market. Children should be at least 5 years old. Please bring a working bicycle that fits your child, a helmet and this completed waiver form.

Then leave the teaching to us while you shop at the farmers market.

Our technique is simple: remove training wheels AND pedals, lower the seat so your child can solidly touch the ground while sitting on the bike, practice balancing on two wheels, then reattach pedals, explain starting AND stopping … and we hope your child will soon be bicycling confidently.

If your child doesn’t master pedaling on June 1, you will have learned the non-back-breaking way to continue helping your child learn.

Parents will receive a booklet with more bicycling tips.

The class will be held in the upper Vaughn Drive parking lot (next to the Farmers Market). We recommend that you arrive between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. (we find kids learn best together). If that doesn’t fit your schedule, you can arrive as late as 11 a.m. We will end the class at 12:30 p.m.

While this class is free, we encourage parents to become members of the WWBPA, either in person on June 1 or in advance onlineYour membership supports our efforts to make West Windsor a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone to walk and bike.

Priority for this class will be given to WWBPA members and to those who pre-register. Email us at [email protected] before June 1 to pre-register or if you have any questions.

This class will not be repeated in 2024. If June 1 doesn’t fit your schedule, we can point you toward other options.
