You're never too old or the weather too cold to learn how to ride a bicycle. That must be the motto of Bike New York as it returns to a frigid Roosevelt Island tomorrow, January 7, with its Adult Learn To Ride Bicycle program at Sportspark. There are two sessions starting at either 10 AM or 1 PM. Registration information is here.  Don't worry about the cold. The lessons are indoors at the Sportspark gym. Classes will also be held on January 23.

Bike New York taught some adults how to ride last December 12 at Sportspark. Here's a sample of their previous Roosevelt Island lesson.
