Ready to jump on the bike but don't feel 100% comfortable with your skills, riding with cars nearby, or riding in groups? The Women's Beginner Series is here to help guide you from novice to confident. The first three classes will build upon each other to lay the foundation for riding efficiently and safely in a group. Then the last lesson will put the previously learned skills to the test in a slow group ride. This will be an intimate setting with other women so that you feel comfortable asking questions that may seem silly or even personal.
Sign up for all of the sessions or just choose the one(s) that speak to you! The Group Ride, however, will require completion of Group Riding Skills 1 and 2.
Participants must be 16 years of age or older.
The classes will take place rain or shine. If the weather becomes too severe, the ride will be cancelled for the safety of all riders. No refunds will be issued.
"I cannot say enough good things about this clinic I just did! I came into this genuinely from the place of what I know about bikes is they have two wheels. That's it. Laura Neighbors explained so many important and basic things about riding my bike and using my bike that I went from basically scared to death to get on the bike to pretty much ready to hop on and go. She obviously has so much knowledge and expertise, but is also a great teacher and knows how to explain things without being condescending. She totally just makes things make sense. Also she is really funny! Yes, I work at Bicycle Sport Shop. However, I am a total beginner. And I cannot recommend this clinic enough for any other women who want to start cycling and really don't know where to start."
"As a rookie cyclist, I thought [the] class was fun, informative and [Laura's] enthusiasm/love for cycling is contagious! It does, indeed, take you back to being a kid again!"
"I have been staring at my bike for 2 years...not knowing quite how to begin our relationship. You gave me the key & opened that door for me yesterday & I now have the confidence to begin what I hope will be a beautiful friendship! I'm so excited to be riding again - all thanks to you!!"
