Family Cycling Workshop
May 19, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
The family that rides together thrives together! Join Bike East Bay’s certified instructors for a day of fun games, safety drills, skills building, and a neighborhood ride. This class is made possible via funding from the City of Alameda.
This workshop is for kids who are able to ride a bike and ready to take to the paths and roadways with their parents (suggested grade range 2nd-6th). The event includes instruction on:
- fitting a helmet
- performing a bike safety check
- communicating with other road users
- riding in a straight line and avoiding obstacles
- as well as navigating safely through intersections, all while playing fun games!
We will also be bringing our bike teeter-totters, making bike-powered fruit smoothies, and ending the class with a group ride around the neighborhood together!
All minors must be accompanied by an adult to participate, both with their own working bikes and helmets. Each child will receive a free reflective vest.
This class is part of the free Alameda Bike Festival & Rodeo. The Festival is after our class, from 12-4pm, with activities for the whole family to enjoy!
