A non-profit organization is making sure all children have the opportunity to hit the road on two wheels.
Bike New York hosted a "learn to ride" free educational class on Sunday in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
The event was tailored specifically for children with special needs.
"When they ride it's a sense of accomplishment for them, they feel they've accomplished something and it's not very hard," said Instructor Joelle Hannah Galatin.
Participants learned to safely brake and pedal during the two-hour course.
Instructors and parents said it's a great way for their children to learn in a safe environment.
"I was so excited by the opportunity for him to have a safe space to learn how to ride a bike. We had been trying for a long time on our own. But just couldn't quite get it together, I'm not skilled enough to teach him some of the things he needs to know," said Natalie Hahn who had her son in the class.
The next free "learn to ride" event for children with special needs is on November 12th.
