Learn to Ride
Andree Sanders, the BikeWhisperer, teaches both group and private classes. Our Learn-to-Ride class is a fun and friendly class that teaches adults and children to ride bikes. Using the approach known as the Balance Method, the bike pedals are removed, allowing the rider to push themselves until they can coast, teaching the body to balance on two wheels. Once the rider can coast for the length of the riding area, we re-introduce the pedals and help put it all together. This method is known for its low-stress, crash–free success.
Our City Bicycling Skills - class offers beginner riders a place to practice their newly honed skills. We will practice starting and stopping, riding in a straight line, and learn about shifting, scanning, and signaling.
Our Commuter class will focus on the rules of the road. Knowing and understanding the NYC laws and traffic rules are key to riding confidently in the streets of NYC.
Andree teaches a group class through Bicycle Habitat and private lessons scheduled individually.
