Bike School is a new 5-week program offered by Auburn Campus Recreation to teach and prepare you to ride on any bike, on any terrain!

Our Master Cyclist, Bill Perry, will coach you through all the cycling fundamentals and basics to transform you into a well-rounded and equipped cyclist on the road and on the mountains. Train on our state-of-the-art indoor Life Fitness cycles to get you ready to explore the great outdoors on wheels. Meet once a week with your cycling peers for an hour ride on the cycles and a 30-minute educational session covering the importance of cross training, nutrition to reach maximum potential, the periodization of training, bike maintenance, and the bike basics, like turning and braking.

Throughout the five weeks, you will track your progress in strength, flexibility and stability, endurance and stamina, and physiological improvement through the use of our MyZone Heart Rate monitoring system and other fitness apps. After completion of the course, resources will be given to allow you to remain connected to the cycling world locally and nationally.

Enroll in Bike School to become a great cyclist while creating new friendships and a new lifelong hobby. It all starts with a single pedal stroke.

Bike School will be held on Mondays from 5:00 pm — 6:30 pm for 5 consecutive weeks with the first session beginning Monday, February 1st.  To register, visit the RWC – Courses, and then select ‘Bike School’. It will take you to the Bike School registration page, where you will be able to choose to participate in the 1st or 2nd offering of Bike School for the spring semester. Once you have decided which offering to enroll in, select ‘Register Now’ or ‘Add to Cart’, and follow the onscreen instructions.
