A Few Words About Us
We are parents, just like you that want to see more kids on bikes and away from the technology distractions. We’ve seen children at parks and playgrounds trying to ride bikes with training wheels and watch them struggle with these awkward and heavy bikes not knowing what to do or have any confidence in how to do anything. With the proper guidance and training, we want to build their confidence, teach them proper safety and bike control before ever introducing them to the skills of pedaling. A bicycle is a child’s first vehicle. And if we treat it like that and give them the proper training and instruction we will impress on them a set of skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives.
We think that every child, no matter the age, should be able to have the feeling of moving themselves under their own power. To have that feeling of freedom beneath their feet. To Find Their Balance And Ride!
Modern Equipment That works for them
Having the correct equipment to learn to ride is one of the most important aspects of our program. Many of the bikes that are purchased from the big box stores are way too heavy and are not designed correctly for young children. When learning to ride at a young age it is important to have a light-weight bicycle that has adjustments capable of fitting even the smallest riders.
That is why we have partnered with the Strider® to provide our students with the best tools for success while learning how to ride. The 12-inch bikes used with the youngest kids are built from a light-weight steel frame that weighs in at just 6.7 lbs assembled. Children as young as 12 months with an inseam of as little as 12-inches can begin their Learn to Ride journey!
As they begin to progress further with their riding skills and move up through our programs Strider® offers a 14x Sport, 16 Sport, and a 20 Sport. The 14x Sport is a great bike to help older children transition to a pedal bike. There is an optional pedal kit that bolts right onto the frame with a single Allen bolt. This bike weighs in at just 12.5 lbs and can be ridden by a child all the way up to 49 inches or fits a smaller rider with just a 16-inch inseam.
As children learn these important skills and they progress quickly, which they will, we are able to help fit them correctly on their next bicycle to help them continue their adventure. And give them the opportunity to get out and enjoy their newfound freedom of riding their bikes with their family and friends.
