Learn to Ride a Bike 2019

 

Never ridden a bike? Need to re-learn? Join us this summer for a free class!

Due to the overwhelming demand, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Divvy are adding more than 100 additional spots to the City’s free bicycle riding classes for adults that are offered in the summer bike-riding season. The classes are taught by CDOT’s team of Bicycling Ambassadors and are designed to encourage adults who have never ridden a bike or haven’t ridden recently to feel comfortable riding a bike on city streets.

Participants in the two-hour classes will receive a free helmet. The classes are also open to children if space is available, however, children under 16 are required to provide their own bike, as  Divvy  does not allow riders under 16. Riders under 5 feet 3 inches may also feel more comfortable on a smaller bike if they can bring one.

From June 10 – August 31, the classes will alternate between three locations:  on Saturdays at the Chicago Center for Green Technology, 445 N. Sacramento Avenue; on Mondays at Kennedy King College, 710 W. 65th Street; and Thursdays at Seward Park, 375 W. Elm Street.
