Frequently Asked Questions
In most cases I will be able to provide a bike and helmet to use during the lesson. During registration you can put in your sizing information.
No pressure. You’ll leave knowing what to practice yourself or with your family member/friend to continue learning. I recommend setting aside time in your schedule afterwards to practice and from past experience, riding independently will usually happen shortly after our initial lesson. And, if you’d like to work with me again, of course we can do another session. In my experience, most people take 2-5 hours to learn to ride and I’m happy to support in the way that works best for everyone.

You are not alone. Come to a workshop or class and learn the essential skills for confident and safe bicycling at your own pace before you ever get out on the road. You will learn the skills for yourself and ways to teach and assess others. You may find that the skills and confidence that come with practice make riding on the road easier to imagine. If and when you are ready, you can join us for a short neighborhood ride.
