    First-time cyclists and self-sufficient bikers age three and a half and up learn new skills in cycling in our half-day, Biking for Tykes day camp. Nurtured by skilled, patient instructors in a supportive on-site environment, our pint-sized pedalers enjoy camper-to-staff ratios of 4:1 for lots of individual attention and personalized coaching tailored to their level. We group kids by ability and meet them exactly where they are, working through a thoughtful progression from scooting to coasting to pedaling for new cyclists and skills like turning, hand signals and technical skills on ramps for more experienced riders. We also make time for games, offering campers opportunities for fun and confidence building both off and on their bikes. Biking for Tykes is intended for kids pre-K – 1st grade who are first-time riders and those who can already ride. While campers are encouraged to use their own bikes, they can also borrow from our fleet.
