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.
Each of the following sessions will be offered at one location: Turkey Run Park, Jones Point Park, or Fort Hunt Park. Call 703-289-2553 for more information or to register for a session.

Learn to Ride will resume in the spring when warmer weather returns. If you are not able to register for any of these fall dates, please check back in April 2015.
