BIG Bike Camps: TRAVELERS!

Travelers (1st and 2nd grade) - Postponed Until 2022

June 14 - 18, 2021

9:00am - 4:00pm 

Our Travelers program is geared for newer riders.  We will make frequent stops at various parks and locations around town where they will learn new skills through engaging activities and discover what it’s like to ride beyond the street they live on!  We cover the essentials of road safety through games and skills clinics and put our skills to use on daily rides that are adapted for younger/newer bicyclists.  They will learn how to use their hands and voice to communicate turns and how to navigate a variety of stops and basic intersections alongside their peers.  Travelers is where the camp journey begins for most campers with every turn of the corner revealing an exciting, new cycling adventure.  

Typical Mileage: 4-8 miles per day

    Our Explorers will ride between 6-15 miles to a featured location in our city each day. Our routes help riders experience different types of road infrastructure and focus on how to ride safely with traffic. They will begin to understand how cyclists communicate with other road users while they navigate new roads and interact with street signage and basic bicycle infrastructure.  Morning skills clinics cover more complex riding maneuvers and build safety skills for rider independence. They will gain experience as they learn how to avoid various hazards on the road and empower one another as they collectively brainstorm ways to help other cyclists minimize risks. All of our programs cover the foundations of bicycle maintenance and road safety. Explorers Plus will learn the basics of taking care of their bicycles from washing them during Bike Spa, properly lubricating them for smooth pedaling, and learning how to secure them when not in use. Explorers Plus camp will be jam-packed with new skills, engaging activities, and opportunities to make new friends!

    We have received a grant that will allow us to reduce our camp fees to $225 per camper for the 2021 cycling camps.  Furthermore, if you have multiple children who have completed the 3rd-6th grades this year, you will qualify for a family discount of $25 per child. Please follow the Register Now link for more information.

    If you would like your child to participate in our Explorers Plus! Cycling Camp, but cannot afford the full camp tuition, you may request consideration for a reduced camp fee. Please follow either of the Register Now links above, and then read the "financial aid" section that is in the information provided on the right side of either Register Now page and proceed accordingly.
