Family Cycling Workshops

We host year-round Family Cycling Workshops led by certified League Cycling Instructors (LCIs) for families who want to ride despite the lack of dedicated infrastructure in Monterey County. We meet in no-to-low traffic areas and talk about family gear (cargo bikes, child seats, trailers, balance bikes, helmets, etc.), "taking the lane", when to use the sidewalk, how to use bike lanes, being flexible about route selection and then we put those skills into practice.

Upcoming Workshops

Riding in Traffic • Bike Lanes • Lack of Dedicated Infrastructure • Riding with Toddlers • Private Instruction

We also offer private instruction!

We are committed to making our Family Cycling Workshops available regardless of ability to pay.

If you need it, simply select the scholarship option (not available for private instruction) that your family is able to do and pay what you can.

If you don't need to use the scholarship option, the workshop costs $50 per family or $100 for private instruction.
