Family Bike Workshops

Families are invited to learn how to ride together in a safe and fun way at our FREE Family Bicycling Workshops.

Family Bicycling is one of the best ways to get around while getting exercise outdoors and spending quality time with kids. There is really no more inspiring and creative way to engage with our community.

In our series, parents (and kids!) learn tips, tricks, and tools for bicycling safely and confidently on our roads.  Join us for one of our Virtual classes now, or for a physical class when we are able to offer them again!
