Program Details

WHAT:

  • 2-Wheel Fridays bicycling and mountain biking programs provide a safe, supportive atmosphere for elementary and middle school children to learn the lifelong joy and skills of bicycling, while having fun outside with friends.
  • Sessions consist of a blend of biking skills, safety, fitness, outdoor exploration, and good, clean fun!
  • Depending on age/ability other topics might include: road/traffic/trail etiquette; team work; bicycle maintenance & repairs; nutrition and hydration; first aid; land and trail stewardship; trail use and access issues.

SKILL:

  • This is not a program for children with training wheels or for completely beginner riders. 
  • The lowest acceptable skill level is that the child must be comfortable and safe riding his/her bike around town with an adult. For 3rd Grade and up, we strongly suggest trail/dirt experience.
  • Bikes need to have hand brakes and gears (exception for 1st graders).
  • Kids will be broken into groups according to skill, experience, motivation, friendships, weather, terrain, and coach/child ratios.

WHEN:

  • Fridays in the Spring and Fall. 

WHERE:

  • Meet behind Absolute Bikes.  Riding locations will vary each week, depending on age and skill level.
    – Riders may be transported or shuttled via shop van during field trip days, alternate meeting locations will be communicated with parents.

MORE:

  • Coaching at a minimum 5:1 ratio.
  • All coaches are CPR and First Aid certified, Lead Coaches are Level 1 Coaching certified.
  • Licensed and insured transportation between Absolute Bikes and riding areas, as necessary.

Additional details about what to bring and how to be prepared will be emailed after registration is completed.
