L.A.B. Bicycle 123 - Youth
WalkBikeBerks just completed it's hosting of a League of American Bicyclists Youth skills class this weekend. This was a 2 hour class for youth up to age 13 where they received specific, individual attention from our certified bicycle instructor Benton Levengood with assistance from WalkBikeBerks executive board members.
All participants received free helmets courtesy of AAA Berks County office as well as $10 gift certificates to Wolvertons Bike Shop courtesy of Wolvertons as well as completion certificate, bookmarks with tips learned from class, updated PA Bicycle Riding manuals, Nike water bottle and bicycle pins.
The conditions for teaching were excellent and participants showed improvements in skills taught throughout the afternoon. Classes such as this for our youth is a stepping stone to learning how to ride responsibly so riding can be fun for everyone.
Keep checking for updates on upcoming classes or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in a class for you our your children. Even those who have extensive miles in their legs on the bike can benefit from a class on increasing your skills or understanding proper vehicular riding behavior.
