Upcoming Classes & Registration

Adult bicycle safety class participants in New Haven

Rolling Safely into the Fall

NCAT offers FREE classes that cater to every level of experience, from beginning to balance and ride to looking to gain confidence in many on-road situations.

 

Our instructors are excited to ride with you and provide educational support toward whatever goals you have on a bike.

NCAT hasn't scheduled outdoor Learn-to-Ride courses past mid-November due to cold weather and short days. Stay tuned for winter classes, fitness walks, and bicycle maintenance clinics.

Bike Skills 203 for Kids: Bike Path Ride
