Learn to ride! Improve your skills! Have fun!
Wheel Kids’ private riding lessons provide one-on-one instruction for children age 5 and up of any cycling ability. Whether your child’s goal is to master riding without training wheels or advanced-level safety skills instruction our coaches can provide an individualized program to meet your needs.
Please note: No lessons are available from Memorial Day through the last weekend of August so we can concentrate on our summer camps.
To determine your child’s riding skill level please refer to our Rider Skills Categories list.
- Lessons typically occur on weekends.
- Location can be arranged somewhere mutually convenient.
As with any lesson in any topic we can’t guarantee that your child(ren) will achieve all of their or your goals. Every child learns differently and every child’s outlook on bike riding is different. Our coaches are excellent in teaching skills that make bike riding easier and safer. They can’t teach a child to “want to ride” or to “like to ride.” Please be sure that your child is interested in bike riding to make the lesson more efficient and more pleasurable for your child.
