URBAN RIDERS

Do you want your child to have the confidence to bike to the park or to the store?  Want your child to have the training to ride their bikes safely and correctly? As an Urban Rider they'll learn bike handling skills, rules of the road, and how to have fun getting wherever they want to go! Rides will include practice navigating intersections, roadways and changing lanes while riding to other neighborhoods.

NOW TWO LEVELS!!

Level 1 - Trails and Lanes: This is our entry level class for children to learn how to bike on trails and bike lanes.
Level 2 - On the Road: Your child will learn how to use their gears appropriately on the streets!  We will ride to student determined destinations.  This class will run rain or shine and bikes need a front headlight and rear reflector.

Bring a helmet and a bike that is in good working condition. The first class will be skills, drills and evaluation to break up into two different level groups, attendance is required.

BIKE RODEOS

The Bike Rodeo will teach your child the basic skills needed to bike safely on the road. Stations will include looking back without swerving, riding straight while missing potholes and crossing busy streets safely. Other stations may include seeing and being seen, chaos corner and riding safely out of a driveway. In addition, children will learn basic bicycle sizing, bike maintenance and helmet sizing. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate so they too learn "cycling road sense." The May Bike Rodeo will have the Appleton Police and Fire departments there to help join in the fun and support May being Bike to School Month. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to learn safe bicycling together.  *Event may end early/late depending on the number of participants
