Have you ever organized a bicycle parade? Why not :)
Next weekend, try rounding up a few of the neighbor kids and some simple arts and crafts supplies so you can put on your own Bicycle Parade around the block… or even better, own Main St!
The idea for this episode began with our desire to take our real-life Buddy Pegs Bicycle Playdates into Spokesville. What would happen if we threw off the reigns on our imaginations and dreamed up the best Bicycle Playdate and community Bike Parade ever??
As Bob and I talked about what actually happens at our Buddy Pegs events, I was reminded of all the shy kids who tend to show up an hang around the edges of our classes. We always do our best to welcome in these kiddos and make them feel special in their own way. But there’s nothing better than another child encouraging that participation and celebrating their new friends’ success. Skipper (our son Braden who has helped us at countless Buddy Pegs events) was the perfect character to help our new friend Melia find her kick bike powers and inner self-confidence!
And Woodruff as the hero? Yup - it was time for him to come out of the shadows and enjoy some of the glory reserved for Poppawheelie, Captain Endo, and Master mouse Kabibble. Bob loves that Woody is a Bergamasco Sheep Dog so of course if he were to save the day… there had to be a flock of sheep involved!

Good news - Schmiddy finally found his way out of the basement and the whole Buddy Pegs gang learns what that mysterious flying object really is when it leads them to Badger Cove. It turns out that a ride to Badger Cove is the perfect way to help remind all the kits, pups, and adult animals in Spokesville about the value of natural places, being outdoors, and life’s truly important moments.
It’s the day after the big parade and now what? The episode starts with Schmiddy in a dream, asking his inner voice how to follow up a wonderful day with an even more wonderful day. Which keeps him bed longer than expected… and trapped in the basement of Buddy Pegs! Daisy Bell arrives to let everyone know all the other kits and pups went right back to their video games after the glorious parade. And a mysterious flying object has the whole Buddy Pegs crew scrambling to find out what’s going on!
In the last episode, the Buddy Pegs crew encouraged Daisy Bell and Cheetos to run the first-ever Bicycle Playdate for kits and pups at the bike shop. Well, the big day has arrived but... so has the rain! Will anyone show up for the event? Spirits are soggy at the bike shop but DB is positive that the sun will come out and the little riders will arrive on time as planned! Buster, our narrator, takes flight high above Spokesville to see if
