PLANNING YOUR LESSON
Students contact us with a wide range of ages, levels of fitness, biking goals and histories. Like our students, our lessons are not all alike! Planning your lesson begins with submission of a New Student Questionnaire. (link below) We will review your profile and get back to you with comments and a suggested plan to get started.

LOCATION
We’ll select a location that’s appropriate for your goals. Lessons are held at various locations in Manhattan.

BIKE and HELMET
Bring yours, or meet at a nearby bike shop to rent your bike and helmet. In some locations we can bring a bike to the lesson for you, adding the rental charge to your invoice.

SCHEDULING
When you fill out your New Student Questionnaire, you’ll be asked about your availability, and a selection of available dates will be offered to you. Lessons are best scheduled early in the day – depending on location, starting times are between 7:15 am and 10:30 am. We do not offer evening / after-work lessons. Tip: Plan ahead! During season, lesson slots may not be available on short notice.

PAYMENT
When we’ve locked in a date, you’ll receive a PayPal invoice. You can use your credit or debit card at PayPal – you don’t even need a PayPal account.

Your payment secures your booking. All lessons must be paid in advance. Refunds are never a problem.

CANCELLATIONS and REFUNDS
If your plans change, just let us know – we’ll reschedule or refund as you wish.*
*Students with 2 cancellations will receive an automatic refund, are will be invited to book on a “no refund” basis.

    Our family calls Lance the “bike angel.” While his focus is teaching adults, we were so lucky that he saw us trying to teach our son how to ride a bike. He saw our son was “almost there” and asked if he could could give a few pointers. Six minutes later, our son was riding. Lance knew exactly how to teach him. It is clear he is a master teacher. We are forever grateful to have bumped into him and experience his kindness and expertise! Did I mention it was six minutes!

    Met Lance on a bike ride thru Central Park. Lance helped us out by adjusting our rental bikes, giving my 9 yr old helpful tips, and making us laugh. We didn’t sign up for a lesson, he just helped us out on our ride. Right place at the right time. Great guy and excellent teacher !
