New cyclists or those coming back to cycling after years off the bike frequently are uncomfortable with basic bicycle handling skills like signaling, turning and stopping. Before they can feel comfortable riding on trails or in traffic they can benefit from practice on their bicycle in a relatively quiet setting, like a parking lot. These basic handling drills are designed to allow a cyclist to feel more confident handling their bicycle. Helmets are mandatory.
Cost: $10 per person / Free with Bike Santa Fe Membership.
