y riders cycling camp

Y Riders Cycling Camps have been teaching kids and teens to ride successfully and safely for more than 25 years. The unique progression of the Y Riders camps allows riders to come back year after year and gain new skills and experiences. Starting in first grade, children can learn how to ride a two-wheeler in Learn to Bike Camp and build their skills in Y Riders Basic Skills. Junior Y Riders and Local Adventures camps teach skills in path riding and mountain biking. Small groups with low ratios provide the perfect environment for campers to learn safe biking and build their skills. Our staff has extensive experience in biking and working with groups of campers. Register Early! Classes and camps are very small due to individual attention given to cyclists. Day camps are divided by sessions throughout the summer.

A bike inspection form is required for Junior Y Riders and Local Adventures.
