ADULT LEARN TO RIDE
It would have been easy when you were 4-years old. Now that you’re all grown up, learning to ride is a completely different challenge – you’ve got years of experience, maturity, and rational thinking to overcome!
I had tried so many times with friends. Nothing like a professional with love for teaching and a good methodology. I am super thankful for having such a joyful experience.” – Fernanda, June 2015
What to expect: ADULT LEARN TO RIDE
VB CONFIDENT BIKING
You know how to ride, but it’s been some time since you were on a bike. Now you’re hoping to get back into biking and share adventures with friends. You’ll enjoy your rides more with reliable bike-handling skills!
On my rides now I realize how much I learned in those lessons that has certainly saved me from making costly mistakes.” -Emma, April 2014
VB ROAD BIKE CLINIC
The first time you get on a road bike you’ll find it’s a different experience than riding your old hybrid. A road bike’s design emphasizes speed and efficiency over stability and comfort – the tires are narrow, the seat is high, the steering is quick, and you’re clipped into your pedals! Solid riding technique is more important now than it was on the more forgiving campus cruiser you’ve ridden before.
He guided me through some exercises (like stopping without falling!), and helped me gain more confidence… I was finally happy and at peace with my new road bike.” -Daniela, August 2015
Highly personalized, together we will decide on a program to get you going on your own virtuous cycle of improved skills and enjoyment.
I look forward to being your instructor!
A naturally gifted teacher, Lance possesses that favorable combination of authority and congeniality that engenders trust, and I felt secure as one of his charges for the day.” – Shelley Griffin
