The Better Bike Share Partnership team at the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia holds 2-hour class Learn to Ride classes for ages 16 and up. Learn to Ride classes help participants learn how to balance, pedal, start, stop, and steer a bike. As well as how to adjust a helmet for proper fit, and hand signaling. Most participants leave pedaling after only 1 class. While other leave with the tools to practice and teach themselves to ride.

Here’s what some of our awesome participants have to say about their Learn to Ride class experience.

“Thank you for providing a safe, fun experience. I got re-acquainted with riding and also learned turn signals!” ~ A. Hogan

“Thank you to everyone on the team for their kindness and patience. I was able to accomplish a simple life goal, riding a bike.” ~ Stephanie Tran
