2021 Update: Due to Covid, and the need for coaches to be in close contact with riders of this age, we will not be offering Bike Play this 2021 spring. We will monitor the Covid situation closely, and will offer Bike Play when we can safely do so.
The Bike Play program is BJC’s intro to cycling for girls and boys ages 4-6. Basic skills will be taught, but the focus is making that critical link between bikes and fun.
Each week of this 6 session program has a specific focus. Riders will learn about the bike, learn to separate the bike and body through games and props, learn wheel placement by riding on bubble wrap or through balloons, participate in bike story time, do bike art and more. The last ride of each session is a parent assist ride at a local trailhead!
To participate in Bike Play, riders must:
- Be 4-6 years of age
- Own a well functioning pedal bike
- Be able to ride a 2 wheeled pedal bike unassisted
- Have a certified helmet
- Be potty trained
- Rotate among locations throughout Boulder
- We will potentially cancel due to bad weather, but make up sessions are not planned and will only be included if feasible within our coaching schedule
