Strider Learn to Ride a Bike Camp

Ages 3-5 years (30-38” tall)
The goal of the STRIDER Camp is to provide a solid foundation of balance and the ability to stride. Riding a bike is a major milestone and Strider camp will provide the tools to teach your child to ride on two wheels. STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bikes were developed specifically to help toddlers and young children of all abilities to learn balance and coordination BEFORE pedaling. The simple, no-pedal design allows even the youngest children to learn to ride a bike, avoiding tricycle tip-overs and training wheel wobbles, and instilling considerable confidence and stellar bike handling skills sure to last a lifetime. STRIDER™ No-Pedal Balance Bikes encourage the development of spatial awareness, balance and basic motor skills so that all children can reach their maximum riding potential faster, better and safer. You will be able to take your bike home to continue to practice the skills learned. There will be a $120 bike deposit secured on first day of class. At the end of the class you can keep the bike and forfeit your deposit or return the bike and we will return your $120.

Location: Heritage Crossing Field House
Res/Nonres: $41/$53, plus $120 bike deposit fee
Max: 5
