Learning how to ride a bike is a huge milestone in every child’s life. Unfortunately, teaching my child how to ride a bike isn’t exactly my strong suit, so I’m thankful for Pedalheads. Read on for more information about their Spring Break camps here in Vancouver!
Since 1995 they have been teaching kids to go from training wheels to trails by incorporating fun lesson plans and small class ratios. Pedalheads has over 75 locations in 4 Canadian provinces (British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec) and 4 US states (Colorado, Illinois, Washington, and Oregon). They offer 6 different instructional biking programs to choose from and recently they have added their mountain biking program.
Their learn-to-ride program teaches children ages two to twelve how to ride without training wheels and ride safely on the road. Their program includes:
- a progression of six instructional levels for you to choose from,
- three-hour half-day camps,
- seven-hour all-day camps,
- private lessons
- before and aftercare options.
The program includes a lot of fun games, navigating obstacle courses, and of course, the fundamentals to help them be successful sans training wheels. As with all camps, the kids will have bathroom and snack breaks and of course, water breaks to help them stay hydrated.
Mountain Biking Program
Mountain biking is their newest program and is suitable for ages 4 and up! It is a trail riding program that focuses’ on developing mountain biking skills such as:
- riding on various surfaces;
- controlling and steering;
- riding in a group; and
- riding up and down hills.
If your child loves nature, adventure, and the great outdoors then this is the program for them!
Spring Break camps will be running from March 18th-22nd & 25th-29th with morning, afternoon, and all day camp options available.
There will be camps at the following locations:
- Vancouver- Prince of Wales Secondary School
