What we're about

Learning to ride a bike can be tough. Lots of scrapped knees and elbows. Or does it? If your child has ever experienced a balance bike (i.e. Strider Bikes), you know that learning can be so much gentler, kinder, and fun. A balance bike is a bike without peddles. Balance bikes come in all shapes and sizes and can be jury rigged by taking the peddles off a traditional bike. Balance bikes help kids learn one skill (balance) at a time without having to learn a second skill (peddling). This group is dedicated to those who have children who either own a balance bike or would like to explore balance bikes. We'll have occasional get-togethers and who knows, maybe even a race or two.
