LEARN TO RIDE A BIKE CLASS (Ages 5-13)
Is your child ready to get rid of the training wheels? Has learning to ride a 2- wheeler been a struggle for your child? The answer is a free clinic run by TransOptions to be held in the Assumption School parking lot on Thursday, October 25th from 3 – 5 pm!
This outdoor hands-on class teaches the safe, easy and effective way to learn to ride on two wheels. Using this “balance first” method, parents help get their children rolling while the child does most of the work. Participants learn the basics of balancing, starting, stopping and steering a bike as well as proper helmet fit and adjustment.
To sign your child up, contact Kate Tully firstname.lastname@example.org
. Once the class is formed more details will be provided about the session. A parent, guardian, care giver must be present at the class.
Note that the class size is limited to 15 kids and enrollment will be first come first serve.
