    Space is limited and these classes always fill up quickly. 

    This Adult Learn to Ride class is for participants 18 and older who have never ridden a bike before or have not been on a bike in some time. Our experienced Instructors break the skills down step by step to get you on a bike and rolling in no time. Participants learn to start and stop, balance, glide, pedal and steer a bike and progress at their own pace.

    Bethesda has seen an increase in bicycle commuting activity. This is expected to continue because of the greater awareness of the benefits of physical fitness. Bethesda Transportation Solutions (BTS) supports bicycle commuting by providing bike racks throughout the central business district and monitoring the demand for additional facilities. BTS also distributes printed information about bicycle safety and maps of bike routes.

    To support area bicycling commuters, BTS is pleased to announce their partnership with the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and Montgomery County Commuter Services to provide Bike Classes in and around Downtown Bethesda!

    Bike Education classes have options for riders of any experience or skill level and are designed to teach the techniques and knowledge critical to riding safely on city streets.
