As new riders get confident, they start to venture out past the end of your driveway and enclosed parks. Having an understanding of the needed traffic skills while riding is necessary for them (not to mention their parents’ well-being).
Help your children to learn how to ride safely on the road by joining us in one of our Family Biking Workshops. Learn how to safely navigate the streets with fun activities, including an optional group ride (parents are encouraged to join in!) after the kids-only instruction.
Taught by a League of American Cyclists certified instructor, topics will include basic bike skills, rules of the road, effective communication, and proper equipment. All drills and riding instruction will take place away from traffic and streets in a controlled environment so that new riders can focus on handling their bicycle and developing these needed skills.
Adult volunteers are needed to cycle with students during the neighborhood bike ride. Helmets are required for all participants. Please register here and provide requested information. A representative from MCBC will email you additional event details.
A parent/guardian is required to ride with each registered student cyclists. All participants are expected to be in good health, bring a properly fitted bicycle in good working condition and a fitted helmet.
