Want to Learn to Ride a Bike? Yes, I Mean You, Adults

Learn to ride a bike for adults, one-hour bike commuter class. BikeAlameda is offering free bike classes this Saturday at South Shore Center in preparation for Bike to Work Day May 10.

 As a bike safety instructor I am often approached by adults who like the idea of riding a bike but never learned and don't know where to get this fun skill.

I suggest coming to a free two-part class this Saturday at South Shore Center.

BikeAlameda, that great organization always working on making Alameda an even more bike-friendly city that it already is, brings you two free bike classes.

One Hour, Commuter Workshop  10 a.m.-11 a.m.

These fun and entertaining classes are taught by the East Bay Bicycle Coalition's bicycle safety instructors, certified by the League of American Bicyclists. Learn basic rules of the road, how to share the road with cars on busy streets and how to avoid crashes by riding predictably, visibly, and communicating with motorists by your actions and signals. No bike required. For ages 14 and up.
