Description

10 participants, ages 12 and under, will be taught how to ride a bicycle by League Certified Instructors. Participants will learn the basics of balancing, starting, stopping, and steering using the "balance first" method. Pedals will be removed until instructors are confident that the participant is ready for them to be put back on the bike.

In the case that a participant does not have their pedals put back on their bike within the time frame of the class, they may participate in as many classes as they need without additional charge, until instructors are confident that the participant is ready for their pedals and can ride their bike with their pedals on.

For these initial classes, there is a limit of 10 participants per class. There is also a $35 participation fee; however, we are willing to work with individuals with financial constraints to make this accessible. Please contact ---> Nicole.Lindahl@bikegso.org if this is the case.


What to Bring

  • A Bicycle. We recommend having the bicycle inspected by a local bike shop prior to the class to ensure that it is in a condition "ready to ride" and that it is the proper size for the class participant.

  • Comfortable Clothes. All participants must wear closed-toed shoes.
  • At Least One Parent or Guardian. At least one parent or guardian must be present throughout the duration of the class.
