Meet our Learn to Ride Coaches!


Our Learn to Ride Coaches are with us this summer to help prepare and execute Learn to Ride classes. They help recruit and coordinate Learn to Ride volunteers, publicize Learn to Ride classes to neighborhood communities, register participants, and co-facilitate classes.
