    True Beginners


    Are you ready to be part of Atlanta’s bicycling craze? The city’s got more and more folks out there riding bikes for fitness, commuting to work and school, as a means to get errands done, or taking in the BeltLine and other park spaces on two wheels. Come learn how to ride a bike!

    This class is for true beginners – kids* or adults who have never been on a bicycle or those who may have tried riding a bike a few times, but are not comfortable balancing, starting and stopping, shifting gears, and scanning the environment while pedaling. After these classes, you will get all those skills and leave empowered to join the thousands of other cyclists enjoying and negotiating Atlanta. 

    We have a limited number of bikes for true beginners to use. Please bring a helmet, water, and sunscreen. There will be an informational session and time outside on a bike.
