Whether you’re 8 or 80, Bicycle Colorado’s Learn to Ride lessons
are the best way to learn to ride a bike!
Have you always dreamed of riding a bike but can’t keep your balance? Does teaching your child to ride often end in tears? Take heart, there is a new way to learn how to ride a bike!
Our Learn to Ride lessons teach children and adults to ride using the gliding technique. With this simple and effective technique, most students are pedaling within two hours.
Learn to Ride is sponsored by Team Evergreen Cycling, a nonprofit and the largest bike club in Colorado. Team Evergreen gives back to bicycling and the broader community in many ways and we are grateful to have them supporting our new riders!
Learn to Ride Successes
We’ve taught more than 250 kids and adults in our first three years offering learn to ride lessons
85% of students who completed our survey said they were able to pedal by the end of their lesson
56% of these students are now riding at least once a week and 70% are riding at least once a month
Small class size, maximum of 8 students with at least two instructors
Awesome, helpful instructors who really took the time to watch everyone and give personal attention. The environment was so supportive and friendly!
The class really helped me re-gain my balance. I’d learned to ride as a child, but after 25 years of not owning or riding a bike, I was very unstable and uncomfortable when I first tried again. The class gave me the skills and confidence to get back out there without making me feel silly.
The staff members are very patient and flexible. They put the needs of the children as the main priority.
