Say goodbye to training wheels! Participants at this camp will learn to ride safely and confidently without training wheels over the course of the week. Participants master balance and gliding first (without pedals or training wheels), and then easily transition to riding independently. From there, we develop and refine essential handling skills: starting/stopping, speed control, turning, steering, riding in groups and around obstacles and hazards. Games and play allow for skills practice and learning bike and traffic safety, bike maintenance, and more. As campers progress, we begin to venture out to park trails for group rides. On the last day, campers show off their skills during a bike parade for parents and receive a t-shirt and completion certificate. Campers ride in parking lots and bike trails within the park. Camp is for children ages 4.5-11.
Required Equipment: bicycle without training wheels (also available to rent, if needed), helmet, bike gloves, water bottle or hydration pack and snack.
Program is led by PedalPower Kids.
