AFTERSCHOOL BIKE CLUB

Ages 5-11

Location: Buddy Pegs Family Ride HQ
1.5 Hour Class Length

Schools out for the day – let’s ride! After school bike club is a chance for kiddos Pre-k-2nd grade who already are independently pedaling to further develop their bicycle skills, safety, and fitness, but it’s much more than that.

After School Bike Club is perfect for kids (5-11) who are rolling along on two wheels, without training wheels, to kids who want to start gaining more confidence and learn mtb skills, and for kiddos who are confidently exploring intermediate+ single track and want to learn more:)

More advanced riders will develop critical mtb skills that will provide them with the confidence they need to excel and be safe little riders.

Buddy Pegs Ride Leaders will work hard to ensure that all kids individually progress in their skills and double their excitement for biking throughout each class. 

Choose the appropriate PAW level for your child during registration so we are better prepared with our coaching staff.  We can always move kiddos around on the first day if need be!
