As a part of our equity initiatives, we are offering Adult Learn-to-Ride classes designed for older teens and adults within traditionally underserved communities across Nebraska in 2024.

And we need instructors! Join us for our Learn-To-Ride Instructor Training.

In this class, you'll learn how to:

- Facilitate and lead a learn-to-ride class on your own
- Teach riders how to balance and steer a bike, starting without pedals and progressing to pedals by the end of class
- To teach adults basic bicycle riding skills, including starting, stopping, steering, and balancing
- Teach safe cycling practices and the benefits of cycling for their health, fitness, and transportation

Class participants will learn how to ride on standard, step-through, bike share bikes provided by Heartland Bike Share.

After the instructor training, you will help lead the first learn-to-ride class and put your newly learned skills to practice alongside your instructor.

Schedule of events:
- 3:00 - 5:00: Instructor class led by Cait Dumas-Hein
- 5:00 - 5:30: Break
- 5:30 - 7:30: Teach a Learn-to-Ride Class


This class is a part the Nebraska Equity in Active Transportation (NEAT) initiative which is funded by the Omaha Community Foundation.
