MSCR offers Learn 2 Ride bike classes


By Nicole Graper

Learn easy, hands-on techniques to get your child riding solo on two wheels. This innovative approach includes balancing, gliding and pedaling. Participants receive a free bike helmet, helmet fitting, instruction and practice time.

The program is designed for children ages 4‒13. Participants must be accompanied by an active companion 16 years of age or older. You must bring a bike that allows the sitting participant to put both feet completely flat on the ground.

Classes will be held Sunday, June 4, in the Warner Park Community Recreation Center parking lot. The cost is $10. Class times are listed below. You must register in advance at
