Bike Week Quick Start & Refresher Course Registration

Many individuals learn to ride their bikes, then how to start and stop. If your child can ride, yet needs more focus on other skills or confidence, sign up below. In addition, there are some who simply haven’t learned to ride and need a quick start. Please sign either of these for the Refresher / Quick Start Course which runs Wednesday through Friday of Bike Week. The new, cutting-edge technology will be available for their use in the gym as well as our outside riding area and seasoned spotters.


Step One: Fill Out Online Registration Form Below

Please allow 20 - 30 minutes to complete the form. Fill out every field carefully. Have a FULL FACE photo (jpeg or gif) of your child prepared to upload.

Step Two: Payment
