Participating in Youth Summer Bike Camp is about empowerment, building confidence, and above all . . . FUN! Through our Youth Summer Bike Camp program your child’s confidence, knowledge, and skills increase in a safe, fun and peer-inspired environment. Activities focus on developing safe-riding skills, mechanical knowledge, and bike handling for each skill level, as well as exposure to health and wellness, environmental stewardship, air quality issues, and recycled art through a series of hands-on experiences.
