Learn to Ride with RCC Cycles (PDF)

girl learning to ride bicycleRESTON, Va. – Ready to get on your bike this spring? Reston Community Center is offering RCC Cycles, a program that helps riders of all ages learn – or re-learn – cycling fundamentals.

Reston resident and certified cycling instructor Kelley Westenhoff will teach four sessions of Learn to Bike this spring: Adult (ages 13 and up) Learn to Bike on April 8 and 29 and youth (ages 6 to 12) Learn to Bike on April 21 and May 5.

Each class is one three hour session. The cost is $65 for Reston patrons/$98 for non- Reston. The fee includes bike rental and use of a helmet. Class size is limited to 10 students.

Topics addressed in class will be basic braking, steering and balance. Westenhoff is a cycling advocate and serves as vice chair of the Reston Bicycle Club. Her technique, certified by the League of American Cyclists, is intuitive and will take students through a progression of skills to launch participants on their way to riding with confidence.

RCC Leisure and Learning Director Eileen Boone said RCC Cycles was started last year in order to support Reston’s growing cycling opportunities, including the many miles of bike trails and the new Capital Bikeshare stations.

“For those who haven’t had the opportunity to learn, this class is a great start down the healthy road of cycling for fun and transportation,” said Boone.
