We adults know that bicycling is a great way to keep fit, but sometimes we forget what it can mean to a child. Riding a bike helps young people develop self-confidence and good judgment, and being safe while riding a bike is an important lesson for kids to learn. On Saturday, June 22, from 9:30am-2:00pm, Cambridge teenagers will have the chance to learn how to stay safe on their bicycles at a free City-sponsored class.

The class will focus on bike safety, rules of the road, and on-bike training to increase teenagers’ street smarts on the pavement. After learning how to ride safely with traffic, students will end their day with an actual bike ride to practice the skills they have learned during the workshop.  Lunch, laughs, and good times are included. 

The workshop will take place at the Vassal Lane Upper School near Fresh Pond (197 Vassal Lane, Cambridge) and the ride will leave from there. You must bring your own bike and have at least some experience riding a bicycle. For registration and additional information, please email jlawrence@cambridgema.gov or call 617-349-4671.
