FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – You never forget how to ride a bike, but if you’ve never learned how to ride one, there’s a new class for adults called “Adult First Ride.”
The free course is offered to the public by the NWA Trailblazers. The program promotes a safe place that encourages everyone to learn to ride a bike at any age.
Classes are led by trained volunteers.
“In the four years I’ve worked for trailblazers, the most rewarding thing I’ve done,” said Anya Bruhn, Trailblazer Bike Education program manager. “As soon as someone learns to ride a bike, I equate it with learning to read. It’s a magical moment when you were on one side of the line and now you’re on the other.
To prepare for class, be sure to wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe sports shoes. bikes and helmets are provided during the course.
Participants will be invited to complete an email survey to get feedback on the class.
The class will take place from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 21 at the Yvonne Richardson Community Center. The class is sponsored by Experience Fayetteville.
You can register here.
If you cannot attend, cancel at least 24 hours before the start of the course.
