Hundreds more children and adults will get the opportunity to learn an important life skill in 2018, as the award-winning Learn to Ride program announces its schedule for the new year!
Five new events will help riders of all ages kick their training wheels and roll to a healthier lifestyle using Learn to Ride’s proven “balance bike” method. More than 500 kids and adults learned to balance and pedal bikes at events around Mecklenburg County in 2017, and Learn to Ride is excited to bring their program to these places in the new year:
- January 20th Arbor Glen Recreation Center
- March 17th Winget Recreation Center
- May 12th MLK Middle School
- August 18th Wallace Pruitt Recreation Center
- October 27th Berewick Recreation Center
“Learn to Ride” was named “Best Kids Cycling Event” in North Carolina for 2016 by Endurance Magazine, and was nominated for a 2017 Sustain Charlotte Award for Transportation.
Co-founder Dick Winters was also recently named winner of the Joe Cogdell Volunteer Service Award from Partners for Parks, for his advocacy of bicycling programs in Charlotte — especially programs for children, like Learn to Ride.
