We Currently Offer Instruction for 3 Classes of Ridership

Age: 5 +
Capacity: 15 children or 5 adults
Number of coaches: 2-3

Learn-to-Pedal & Rookie Riders

Join us for some fun conquering pedals and our fears. This is perfect for you If you don’t know how to start, pedal, or stop on your own. At your pace with personalized tips and tricks from the coaches, you’ll gain control of your bicycle, tame your fears, and be riding in no time! Many parents are surprised at how much the kids progress in this camp. As a beginner adult you will be excited to see just how much your confidence grows after this level.

Level 3-4: Novice/Intermediate Riders (Includes offsite riding)
Age: 6 +
Capacity: 15 children or 5 adults
Number of coaches: 2-3

Novice & Intermediate Riders

You can pedal and ride a bicycle, that’s awesome! But can you ride one-handed, stop suddenly at a red light, ride in a group, or ride off road? If not, you belong in this level! Our courses include traffic lights and stop signs where you can learn to control your bike and your mind in challenging situations. We do all of this in the safety of a parking lot. And if everyone is feeling stable and confident, we’ll go out on trails together for some serious fun.

Level 5-6: Proficient/Independent (Mainly offsite riding)
Age: 8 +
Capacity: 10 children or 5 adults
Number of coaches: 2-3

Proficient & Independent Riders

Do you know how to ride a bike and want to go on some riding adventures? Let’s explore trails and learn to overcome the unexpected. There are endless routes to take in this camp. The only thing standing in our way is how far we can go. Riding on paved and unpaved trails, we’ll pick a location, learn how to read maps, navigate traffic on the trails and roadway intersections, change a flat tire, ride to the bike parks, and maybe even get ice cream or get our feet wet in a stream. There are countless surprises along the way and loads of fun.
