LEARN TO PEDAL

Few of life’s milestones are as memorable as learning to ride a bike. But all too often the process to get there is full of anxiety, unnecessary struggle, and tears. At Buddy Pegs children love every stage of learning to ride thanks to our incredible Buddy Pegs certified coaches who weave our unique Learn to Pedal curriculum into play-based challenges and games. Students learn the fundamentals of balancing a bike without pedals (no training wheels) thanks to our no-pedal glide method of teaching. This helps develop the muscle memory and confidence needed to pedal independently. Once the class is pedaling and braking safely it’s time to roll out and learn how to ride safely in a group, alongside other trail users. Each participant will expand his/her cycling knowledge, skills, and distance. The series culminates with a destination ride and bicycle parade (parents welcome).

Perfect for kids who are not yet pedaling on two wheels (without the aid of training wheels). Even though some children start the week nervous, most campers will be pedaling confidently on their own by day two thanks to our compassionate, patient, and FUN coaches. This camp is run by certified Buddy Pegs Coaches who will ensure all kids individually progress in their skills and double their excitement for biking throughout the week! The week concludes with an all camp bike parade to show off and celebrate each child’s new biking skills. Powered by Buddy Pegs Learn To Ride, the leader in youth cycling education.

Ages: (5-10 yo)

BICYCLE ADVENTURE CAMP

Perfect for kids who are ready to have some two wheeled fun, crank out bike adventures and improve safe riding skills on wide multi-use trails and low traffic neighborhood streets. Riding adventures away from base camp will be a highlight with distances varying by ability level each day  (children grouped by ability level)! Bike skills taught include: brake modulation, emergency braking, steering in control, riding in a group, riding up and down hills, traffic safety, and yielding to other trail users. Super fun on-the-bike and off-the-bike games and craft activities round out the week.. This camp is all about safety and fun on two wheels! Note: Training wheels are not allowed. Children on training wheels should sign up for our Learn To Pedal camp - bike rentals available. 

 

20” bicycle wheel size or bigger is required.
