Is your child struggling to learn how to ride their bike? Through step by step, engaging activities we'll help them with their cycling. 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 - 11 years old.

  • Children will receive a blend of personalized and group instruction to help them overcome fears and learn important skills
  • Please bring a properly fitted bicycle with the training wheels removed
