A Reston resident will lead RCC Cycles, a program by Reston Community Center that aims to teacher riders of all ages the fundamentals of cycling.
Kelley Westenhoff, a certified cycling instructor, will teach three-hour sessions for students age 13 and up on April 8 and 29 and sessions for students between ages 6 and 12 on April 21 and May 5.
The cost, which includes rental of a bike and the use of a helmet, is $65 for Reston residents and $98 for all others. Each class is limited to 10 students.
For more information, visit RCC’s website. Registration is available online.
Here’s more from a release by RCC:
Topics addressed in class will be basic braking, steering and balance. Westenhoff is a cycling advocate and serves as vice chair of the Reston Bicycle Club. Her technique, certified by the League of American Cyclists, is intuitive and will take students through a progression of skills to launch participants on their way to riding with confidence.
RCC Leisure and Learning Director Eileen Boone said RCC Cycles was started last year in order to support Reston’s growing cycling opportunities, including the many miles of bike trails and the new Capital Bikeshare stations.
“For those who haven’t had the opportunity to learn, this class is a great start down the healthy road of cycling for fun and transportation,” said Boone.
