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!

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.

  • #BicycleColorado supporter FattE-Bikes is offering a holiday promo for new bike buyers now through Thanksgiving weekend! If you’ve been thinking about getting either a fat bike or an e-bike, now’s the time to do both (and support a local Colorado business while you’re at it)!

I left at 31 ° this morning. Contrary to what I have believed my entire life, you can ride a bike at that temperature. However, I miss having hair, because 31 degrees, going ~25 mph down a hill, is really cold when it goes through the helmet and hits the bald head. @bicyclecolo #bicyclecommute #lesscars
  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
