Our free learn-to-ride classes are led by women and are for any Boston resident who identifies as female or gender-nonconforming. Our experienced staff and volunteers will help each participant gain the skills and confidence to get on a bike and keep on rolling! Bikes and helmets provided upon request. Registration is required.
About Our Clinics
The Basic Skills Clinic is for you if:
- you have never ridden a bike before
- you haven't been on a bike for years, or
- you can ride a little, but need to practice starting, stopping, turning, and hand signaling.
The Intro to Street Skills clinic is for you if you have the basics down, but want to build your confidence riding on the street. We start with some drills off-street. Then, we ride as a group on streets with traffic.
