True Beginners

ABC_BikeClasses_Header_UC.jpg

Come learn how to ride a bike!

Our free True Beginners class is for adults who don’t know how to ride and want to gain confidence on two wheels.

This class will teach you to…

  • Balance
  • Start and stop
  • Shift gears
  • Scan the environment while pedaling

…And leave empowered and ready to ride for fun, fitness, and commuting!

Equipment: Bring your own helmet. We have bikes you can use, although we recommend bringing your bike since it is best to learn to ride on the bike you will be using the most.

Location: Washington Park Recreation Center, 102 Ollie St. NW, Atlanta GA, 30314
  A short walk from Ashby MARTA station.
