Description

Learn to Pedal / Beginner Rider Summer Camp:

Ages 5-13- Half Day Camp

We guarantee you will see a very noticeable change in your child’s ability, confidence, and desire to ride 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. Once riding is mastered, it feels easy, but learning to ride a bicycle is not simple. Which is why so many parents struggle teaching their own kids. 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

  • 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

This camp is designed to fundamentally change your beginning child’s riding ability regardless of what level of beginner rider they start from. Every child learns at a different rate, and some progress faster than others. We guarantee that every participant in this class will highly benefit from our instruction. Class operates in a safe, enclosed parking lot as a learning environment, but we use this setting to create a variety of courses with a variety of drills and adaptive techniques so children can practice fundamental skills safely based on the child's individual abilities. Following camp you will be able to practice with your kids by taking them to ride with you in a safe area.

We highly recommend signing up for one of our Early Rider / Intermediate Rider summer camps, which offers a continuing, comprehensive, week-long program that push abilities further. Repeated days of riding while also focusing on specific drills will dramatically improve your child’s riding ability.

We welcome working with a diversity of children: If you believe your child needs specialized instruction (for example, very hesitant or fearful) or your child has special needs, please contact us to discuss options that will offer appropriate support for your child’s success. We offer private, one-on-one lessons. We have had great success working with children first in a private lesson and then transitioning them to a group setting for additional growth and practice.
