SPRING BREAK CAMPS

Learn to ride with Two Wheelers Club!

27 – 31 March 2017 (SFUSD Spring Break)

10 – 14 April 2017 (Private schools Spring Break)

 

TWO WHEELERS CLUB

For kids 5 – 8 (must be in or above K in 2016-17 school year) who wish to learn to ride or improve on their fundamentals. The emphasis of TWC is obtaining the balance and coordination needed to ride on two wheels, and to master starting, stopping, and controlled forward movement. But, it’s not bootcamp on wheels. TWC riders have plenty of off-bike fun. And, by the end of the week they’re often ready to take a bike ride around the neighborhood.

TWC is for Novice and Beginner riders only.

Hours are 8:30 to 4:00 daily, afternoon extended hours available from 4:00 to 5:30. Each day of the week provides a mix of on-bike training and practice and off-bike opportunities to play and forget about learning to ride for a while. The day’s schedule is flexible, allowing the kids and coaches to figure out what’s best at any given time – some groups of kids are eager to ride as much as possible, while others are more comfortable with a more relaxed pace.

The framework for a typical day is:

  • 8:30 to 9:00: Arrival and check-in.
  • 9:00 to 9:30: Circle time – “ice breaker” games to make sure everyone’s comfortable and ready to get started.
  • 9:30 – 12:00: Each day’s bicycling activities begin with a bike and helmet check. The rest of the morning is spent in 30 to 45 minute skills training sessions, with snack, restroom and play breaks between each session.
  • 12:00 to 1:00: Lunchtime and playground play.
  • 1:00 – 3:30: During the afternoon we’ll usually leave the clubhouse area for an adventure in the neighborhood. There are many things to discover nearby, including other area parks, nature trails in the Presidio, or even destinations accessible with a quick Muni ride. There’s also the possibility of learning more about bikes inside the clubhouse, from mechanical features to maintenance to even a little bit of mathematics.
  • 3:30 – 4:00: Story and play time. Each day ends with a quiet period devoted to reading a bike-themed story with the group and discussing what was learned during the day. The remaining time is devoted to free play until pick-up.
  • 4:00: Pick-up.
  • 4:00 – 5:30: Extended Hours. This is an opportunity to practice riding skills, play games, read, or work on bikes with the coaches.
