Event description

Rider Levels 1 and 2:  Learn-to-Pedal and Rookie Riders

Camp Focus: Have Fun / Tame Fears / Learn to Pedal / Develop Control While Pedaling 

This camp sets the groundwork for kids to become confident riders no matter where they start on day 1. Our focus on unique, rider-specific instruction AND fun is intentional; we are aiming to create lifelong riders! Camp operates in a safe, enclosed parking lot where we use a variety of coned courses, stop signs, stop lights, and a tunnel of mist to teach adaptive drills and techniques. Kiddos practice fundamental skills safely and at their own pace.  After this camp, nearly all parents report seeing a significant difference in their kids' approach and mindset towards riding a bike. They will not be ready for busy trails or off-road riding (please see our Level 3-4 classes for this progression); however, young riders will have a lot of new skills to show you when they complete this camp and you'll be happily riding together in no time!

*** If your child has special needs, please contact us (# below) to discuss options that will offer appropriate support for your child’s success.  

*** If you have questions pertaining to camp, equipment etc, please, also contact us.
