PRIVATE LESSONS

Teaching your child to ride a bike is one thing, but having them love it is another. Thankfully, Buddy Pegs is here to help you with both! Our early childhood cycling coaches are ready to introduce your little explorers to the wonders of a childhood on two wheels and the tools of lifelong happiness and success that comes from it.

Thanks to the introduction of balance bikes, and high-quality first pedal bikes, there has never been a better time to teach kids how to ride. And now that journey begins as early as two years old! You remember how important your bike was for you as a kid. Now it’s time to introduce your child to a love of bicycling, the right way! 

We will happily teach anyone from age 2-100. Its never too late to learn the pleasure of a bike ride.
