Adult Learn-to-Ride

Bike Walk Nebraska provides free, two-hour classes for older teens (15 years or older) and adults eager to learn or re-learn how to ride a bicycle. Our classes are design to teach you how to ride a bike, including balancing, steering and braking and provides all the materials necessary. 

The hands-on curriculum utilizes step-through bikes for accessibility and familiarity to the bikes utilized by Heartland Bike Share, Bike LNK, and Valentine Bike Share to familiarize participants with the transportation system. 

The Adult Learn to Ride Class is part of Bike Walk Nebraska’s Nebraska Equity in Active Transportation (NEAT) Initiative is made possibly by funding from the Omaha Community Foundation.

Classes In Your Community

Bike Walk Nebraska has classes established in Downtown Omaha (Lincoln is coming soon!) and is looking for other communities who want to champion this programming. Here's a quick overview of what's required to kick off Learn-to-Ride classes in your community:

  • Budget & Supplies: Bike Walk Nebraska provides the curriculum, materials, gear, and class funding.
  • Infrastructure: Year-round storage for up to 10 bikes and a 10,000 sq. ft parking lot is required for the class.
  • Coordination: Bike Walk Nebraska trains local instructors and co-hosts the first participant class. After that, a local coordinator runs all future courses, and BWN manages registration.
