Date: Saturday, April 08, 2017
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 pm

Are you struggling to teach your child to ride the old fashioned way? Join us! Bike Right Learn to Ride will teach your child the safe, easy and effective way to learn to ride for children ages 5+. Using the "balance first" method, parents help get their children rolling while the child does most of the work.  Participants learn the basics of balancing, starting, stopping, and steering a bike as well as proper helmet fit and adjustment.

Registration is required prior to the event, and space is limited, but the program is free.  Click here for a registration form.  To register or to volunteer as a helper for this event, download the Registration and Medical form and send it in or drop it off to: Byram Parks and Recreation, 10 Mansfield Drive, Stanhope, NJ 07874.
