Learn to Ride-ADULTS
You will need to provide your own bike and helmet. Rentals are available at Diamond Cycle on Bloomfield Ave.,(973-509-0233).
We use the balance first method, which is to drop the seat height so you can sit while your feet are flat on the ground. We also remove the pedals so they are not in the way as you scoot yourself along. Gradually you learn to balance and roll along with your feet off the ground for longer and longer stretches. Eventually you have enough control to put the pedals back on with confidence and you start pedaling with a BIG smile on your face!
Please bring a water bottle, sun screen and you may find it helpful to bring a "gel seat" for more sitting comfort. Getting used to some bike seats can be the most painful part of this process.
