Is your child planning on biking to school next year? Get them ready over the Summer! Open to all 10-14 year old.
Biking is a great way to get to school, and students enjoy riding with friends and love the freedom of having their own wheels. What they need are the skills to ride confidently, within the law, and preparedness for a flat tire. Over the five days in this camp, students will learn basic bike mechanics, fixing a flat tire, bike handling skills, signage, visibility, etiquette and how to choose the best, safest route to school. They'll go on group rides each day with certified League Cycling Instructors (LCIs).
DATES: June 12-16 (Mon-Fri) from 9:00am to 12:00 pm
IMPORTANT: Please note the change of location. The group will meet at Carpinteria Children's Project
A Helmet and a bike in working condition are required. Please go over the Bicycle Safety Checklist before the first day of class. Participants must be able to ride independently and follow directions and safety rules. Be ready to have fun and dress for a bike ride: no flip flops or baggy pant legs that can get caught in the chain! Bring sunscreen, a snack and some water.
Register Early! Space is limited to 12 participants, invite friends! Non-refundable registration fee: $50 for a camp valued at $200.
