Skill Building Course

This class is perfect for anyone who's previously attended a Learn to Ride class or is able to pedal but could use more practice turning, signaling, scanning, and generally getting the bike to do what you want it to!

Participants will navigate a skill-building obstacle course, which is not only a fun challenge but also a great way to learn real-world skills to help them ride around the city confidently and safely.

Different courses teach different skills like avoiding hazards, scanning the area while riding straight, making tight turns, signaling, balance, and control.

There's no cost to sign-up and participants receive a free helmet!
