This Class is an introduction to cycling. Participants are expected to know how to ride a bike and are interested in working on skills and fitness to better their riding experience.
Get comfortable riding on the trails and paths around Luscher Farm and work on your skills and fitness. Learn braking, shifting, body position, climbing, descending, and cornering. Bring your own working bike and helmet.
*SAFETY REQUIREMENT FOR CLASS*
Bike & Helmet Safety-Check and Fit-Check:
In order to provide the safest possible environment for class participants, we are asking that every bike and helmet gets inspected and fit-checked by a professional mechanic at a local bike shop. Your child needs to accompany you to this bike safety-check and fit-check. Even if your child’s bike is new, we ask that all bikes go through a bike safety check. We want to make sure that the bike is the right size for your child. A bike too big or too small can pose safety concerns. We also want to a make sure tires and brakes are not worn. If we feel that your child’s bike or helmet are not safe, they will not be allowed to ride during class.
