August 17, 2020 - August 21, 2020 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Where

Bike Fed Office
187 E Becher St.
Milwaukee, WI

Kids will have a blast on bikes exploring Milwaukee with the Wisconsin Bike Fed’s experienced staff. Our Milwaukee office has moved! Now located in Bay View. Still close to access for Oak Leaf Trail, Hank Aaron trail and Kinnickinnick River Trail. This session is a BEGINNERS session. We offer an Advanced Session the following week for those who want more distance and challenge or have taken our camps before.

Our expert safety instructors will teach your child how to bike safely and legally, including how to use hand signals, road positioning, turning, and proper helmet fitting. After we cover the basics, we will head out on our amazing local trail system and low-traffic neighborhood streets on our way to fun and unique destinations around Milwaukee.

Bike Camps are grouped by ability level. Beginner sessions may travel 10-20 miles a day, but include stops to rest depending on group ability. Advanced groups plan to go further with fewer stops. After one short camp, your child will become a more confident rider and learn more about how to safely get around on a bike. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, we cannot teach kids how to ride a bike if they have never learned. For information about learning how to ride a bike, or if you are unsure which camp to sign up for, please contact Bike Fed Program Manager, Michael Anderson.

Multiple child in same family discounts available. Contact us for details. 

*** THIS CAMP HAS A MINIMUM ENROLLMENT OF 10, Camp may be cancelled if this minimum is not met, any registered at that point will receive full refund.***

Bikes are provided, but feel free to use your own. New helmets children can keep are provided for those who don’t have one. We also provide healthy snacks and water, but please pack a lunch for your child. We have a refrigerator on site, but often times bring food along on rides so things that can be safely eaten while not being refrigerated are preferred.

Please inform staff of any medical conditions (including inhalers!) or special needs or allergies your child may have.

Nuestro experimentado y entrenado equipo de instructores enseñará a su hijo(a) todo lo relacionado a la seguridad vial del ciclista incluyendo como señalizar con sus manos, donde posicionarse en la calle, doblar a la derecha e izquierda en distintos tipos de instersecciones, y el uso apropiado de un casco. Una vez estudiado lo básico, saldremos a nuestro asombroso sistema local de senderos. Manejaremos nuestras bicicletas por el Hank Aaron State Trail, Oak Leaf Trail y algunas calles de vecindarios tranquilos en camino a los destinos únicos que la ciudad de Milwaukee ofrece. Nosotros proveemos las bicicletas, aunque son libres de usar las propias. También proveemos los cascos, y estos se los pueden quedar y llevar a su hogar al final del programa.

Vamos a fortalecer la confianza que su hijo(a) tiene en sus propias habilidades, mejorar sus técnicas de manejo, resistencia, y guiarlos hacia una independencia segura y orientada a sus propias metas. Desafortunadamente NO tendremos tiempo suficiente para enseñarles a andar en bicicleta desde cero. También proveeremos agua y meriendas/snacks saludables. Por favor enviar almuerzo para su hijo(a), tenemos un refrigerador en el lugar.

Se ruega informar a nuestro equipo en caso de cualquier condición médica especial (¡Inhaladores incluidos!), o cualquier necesidad especial o alergia.
