What is a Bicycle Playdate?
To start, you can think about them as:
> Unplugged family time.
> Your child’s first group rides.
> The start of lifelong family adventure.
To be more specific... Bicycle Playdates are a series of bicycle-based learning experiences for you and your toddler and pre-school age children.
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, or uncle, our trained ride leaders want to help YOU guide your child through the early years on a bike. And have a lot of fun doing it!
1. Develop early interest in the bicycle - we make biking fun!
2. Teach adults how to “play” with their children using the bicycle.
3. Introduce the foundational skills of balance, turning, and stopping
Ages 3 - 7
Are your kiddos ready to start the journey towards early pedaling? Sick of those training wheels and not sure how to graduate past them? Our play-based Learn To Pedal program uses fun games and activities to create independent and confident pedalers who simply love to ride.
Through these sessions, kiddos will progress through foundational skills such as balancing, gliding, and braking before we make the easy and gentle transition to pedals.
But we’re not just checking the “pedaling” box - that’s just the beginning. Once your child is pedaling independently, our Learn To Pedal coaches will continue to progress him or her through the next milestones of cycling including standing and pedaling, 360-degree awareness, navigating variable terrain, and preparing for longer rides.
The skill of pedaling unlocks a world of adventure for your kids but it’s critical to keep them learning what it means to be a safe and confident rider once speed and distance increase.
1. Develop the self awareness and skills that allow for safe riding.
2. Pedaling independently on two wheels (training wheels not allowed).
3. Make your child at least twice as excited to ride as before!
Kindergarten through 2nd Graders
Schools out for the day - let’s ride! After school bike club is a chance for your elementary age children to further develop their bicycle skills, safety, and fitness.
But it’s much more than that. These multi-week sessions give kids the opportunity to safely explore their community on two wheels, experience the camaraderie of group bike rides, and develop lifelong tools of self-confidence, resilience, and connection to the physical world around them.
1. Grow children’s sense of connection to the community and the natural world.
2. Create safe and self-aware riders.
3. Make your kids twice as stoked about biking!
* If your child still needs help shedding the training wheels or making the jump from balance bike to pedal bike, please take a look at our Learn To Pedal Classes.

Our Family Bike Club helps parents get off the sidelines and onto the trail with your youngest riders.
These super fun family group rides are the perfect framework for you to connect with your kids on bikes, and for your kids to learn how to ride safely through their community.
Rides will begin at our Bicycle Playground where kids will practice fundamental bicycle skills through fun games and activities before heading out for a group ride to new destinations each week.
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!

What better way to spend a summer week than on a bicycle?
