Learn to Ride a Bike (ages 5-11)

Is your child struggling to learn how to ride a bike? Through step-by-step engaging instruction, our patient instructors will help them learn to balance and get rolling. Children should arrive with their own bicycle with training wheels removed, and a helmet. They should be able to sit on the seat with their feet flat on the ground.
Classes are held in collaboration with Windsor, Santa Rosa, and Petaluma Parks & Recreation Departments on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30.  Students can take as many sessions as they need! Click on the city name below to register for classes at that location.
