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 bikes 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. STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN BIKES! A properly fitted bike is essential for your child's comfort and safety. They should be able to sit fully on the seat with their feet flat on the ground. If you are able, please remove training wheels prior to the class. Registration fees need to be paid for each child. Accompanying adults do not require payment, but must remain on-site for the duration of the program.
***Prior to class, please assure your child's bike properly fits and is prepared for class. Tires should have proper air inflation; pedals and training wheels are removed; seat is lowered so child's feet are flat on the ground. Your local REI Bike Shop can help with this free of charge. Please call to make an appointment the week prior to class. Hurry, appointments fill fast! Bring pedals to class.***
