Learn to Ride
Learn to Ride introduces an effective and low-stress way to learn to ride a bicycle. Using a "balance first" method, kids will learn how to ride independently. This program helps young riders to be more comfortable while teaching both parents and children an easy biking technique.
Learn to Ride is offered at Turkey Run Park, Jones Point Park, and Fort Hunt Park. Call 703-289-2553 for more information or to register for one of these sessions:
Sunday, September 8
Saturday, September 28
Sunday, October 13
Saturday, October 26
There are very few spots left in these sessions. You may be able to join a wait list; otherwise, please stay tuned for more Learn to Ride dates in the spring of 2014.
