Learn to Bike! This Summer in Mill Valley.

February 18, 2016

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Avid4 Adventure which offers summer camps for kids K-12th grades in Mill Valley, Oakland, Palo Alto and Saratoga. Learn more at avid4.com.

At Avid4 Adventure, we think it's never too early to introduce kids to the joys of being active outdoors. That's why our Learn to Bike! day camp helps kids age 3.5 and up embrace the fun of self-sufficient cycling.

Designed for first-time riders (or kids using training wheels or balance bikes), our half-day camp groups kids by ability and leads them through a progression of skills—walking their bikes, scooting downhill, coasting with their feet up, touching the pedals and finally pedaling—giving them the skills they need to get comfortable on two wheels. We also make time for games, art and yoga, offering campers opportunities for fun and confidence building both off and on their bikes.
