Toddler & Pre-K Bicycle Programs

Buddy Pegs 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 expose littles to the bicycle.  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 have multiple options for kids from 2-5 year olds.  Please check them out below.

Are your kiddos ready to start the journey towards early pedaling? Are you not sure how to graduate these pint-sized rippers to pedals?

Our play-based Learn To Pedal program uses fun games and activities to create independent and confident mini 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.
