Description

Learn to Pedal / Beginner Rider 1-Day: Ages 5-13

This is an excellent clinic to jump start your child’s riding ability and confidence about riding a bicycle.

Learning to ride a bicycle is a moment in someone’s life that will likely be a lifelong memory. Many times it is a moment of huge growth and accomplishment. In this camp, we welcome kids ages 5 - 13 who are beginner riders.

Learn to Pedal: There are sub-levels of beginner riders. We welcome beginners ages 5 - 13, who

  • kids with training wheels welcome!

  • have no experience with a bicycle whatsoever

  • have experience with training wheels or strider type bicycles and are ready for the next step

  • may be fearful / hesitant / resistant / emotional

  • struggle to hold their balance

Beginner Riders:

  • can pedal but use their feet to stop or having trouble stopping

  • slow reaction times

  • have a hard time starting or weave excessively while riding

  • you as a parent would consider their ability as “new” or “beginner”

  • would benefit from an outside source teaching them to ride

Children learn at different rates, and some progress faster than others. We cannot guarantee that every child will begin to pedal in this 1-day clinic, but the vast majority of our campers do pedal. Following the 1-day clinic you can expect your child to a.) be pedaling and braking, b.) be pedaling and working towards braking, or c.) have progressed a significant amount and know what they need to continue practicing at home. They should all show a positive attitude towards riding. The 1-day clinic is a great jumpstart into learning to pedal and building good beginner level control of their bicycle. The kids will have worked hard and will be tired.

Class operates in a safe, enclosed parking lot as a learning environment, but we use this setting to create courses with a variety of drills and adaptive techniques so children can practice fundamental skills safely based on your child's individual abilities. We highly recommend signing up for one of our Learn to Pedal/Early Rider &/or Early Rider / Intermediate Rider summer camps, which offers a comprehensive week-long program. Repeated days of riding while also focusing on specific drills will dramatically change your child’s riding ability.

We welcome working with a diversity of children. If you believe your child needs specialized instruction or your child has special needs, please contact us to discuss options that will offer appropriate support for your child’s success. We also offer private, one-on-one lessons.
