Assisted Cycling Tours hosting Bike (tandem) Clinic

Have you ever wanted to take your child (adults are welcome too!) for a bike ride, but didn’t know what to do? A two hour hands on demonstration on tandem biking and bicycle safety will get you started in the right direction.

Join Assisted Cycling Tours to get a hand’s on demonstration with a tandem bike ride. We will be doing a 15
minute bicycle safety and instruction discussion and then proceed out to the parking lot for a bike fitting, ride around the parking lot to get everyone accustomed to the feel of riding a tandem. Depending on availability, once everyone is comfortable, we’ll go on the trail behind our offices for a longer bike ride to get everyone
out and about.

We’ll be providing the tandems, lunch and drinks. Please make sure that your child/adult is capable of either pedaling or the person riding with them is capable of pedaling both.

Cycling is such an amazing activity to do with your child and they will thank you for it! Cycling promotes muscle strength, coordination and balance as well as a sense of independence. It’s not as difficult as you may imagine.

WHEN: March 26th from 11 am to 1 pm
WHERE: ACT Offices, 12665 W. 52nd Ave., Arvada
HOW MUCH: $10 Per Family, Lunch is included. Scholarships are available.

WHAT DO I NEED: Bring yourself, bike gloves and a water bottle. Please be sure to wear appropriate clothing including shoes. Tandem bikes and helmets will be provided. If you’re not riding on a tandem, please bring your own bicycle. We will be providing tandems only.

If you cannot ride with your child, you are still welcome to attend and we will provide a captain for the tandem.

RESERVATIONS ARE NECESSARY – PLEASE RSVP to Bob Matter at 303 945-6205.
