How to Ride a Bike for Kids

  • Participants

    Age 5 and up

  • Fitness level: 1


Is your child struggling to learn how to ride their bike? Through step by step, engaging activities we'll get them rolling in no time. Our kid-friendly instructors will provide a combination of personalized and group instruction to help overcome fears, teach important skills such as starting and stopping, and help them understand how to maneuver their bike around obstacles. This may be the only lesson they will need! Our fun, unique and proven instruction methods have helped hundreds of kids experience the joy of riding a bike. A properly fitted bike is essential for your child's comfort and safety. Students should arrive with their own bike with the training wheels removed. They should be able to sit on the seat with their feet flat on the ground. This class is for children 5-12 years old, and accompanying adults will be expected to support their budding cyclist throughout.
