Biking is more than a fun activity; it’s a critical development activity that enhances physical coordination, emotional resilience, and social skills. Engaging in cycling from ages 2-5 not only propels their little bodies into action but also nurtures their growing minds, laying down neural pathways for a lifetime of learning and emotional well-being. Let’s kickstart this thrilling journey on two wheels, where every turn is a new discovery and every ride, a leap towards a brighter, more connected future. 🚲💡✨

Get Ready To Improve Your Ride

A dynamic kids bicycle class that offers an immersive journey through the fascinating world of cycling for kids typically aged 6-9. Whether they’re novices who just learned to pedal or seasoned riders honing their skills, our class provides a nurturing environment where every participant can thrive and grow. We believe in fostering a sense of camaraderie and mutual support, creating a space where young cyclists of all ability levels can come together to learn, explore, and flourish. With a unique curriculum designed specifically for both beginners and intermediate riders, we offer a comprehensive range of activities and challenges tailored to each child’s unique stage of development.

Because Pedal Champs casts a wide net for age & ability level (in between not pedaling, and advanced mountain biking), our expert coaches evaluate each child’s ability level on day one, and then divide them into ability level sub-groups which is dynamic throughout the program– so they’re always riding with other kiddos of similar ability. Embark on this transformative journey, building confidence, mastering new techniques, and discovering the joy of cycling in a safe and supportive setting!

“They always have something for kids to engage. My kid went for bike class and it was his first time and awesome experience. They did a free helmet and bicycle check and update you if any changes required.”

“This crew is the best! They’ve helped us have size and skill appropriate bikes for kiddos for years. Also, our youngest just attended an BP adventure camp and has had an absolute blast. I wish I could give them 10 stars!”
