Velo Kids

Over The River And Through The Woods

Velo Kids is all about getting kids on bikes! Teaching bike skills, bike safety, and bike trail stewardship.

Join us throughout the year at our Velo Kids events and rides. Velo Kids bike rides and events are for kids ages 2-15. Riding groups will be split up by riding ability. We will have coaches for each ability level.

FREE for all kids. Helmets always required. Know a kid who needs a bike and doesn't have the means to buy one? Please send an email to

Once your child participates in 3 rides, they will earn a Velo Kids riding tech tee! FREE. 

Parents of the Lil' Strider riders are encouraged to stay during the ride, parents of all other groups are invited to ride, although we ask that they stay behind the group 'Sweeper' Velo  Coach. Parents are not required to ride with their kids. 

*Background checks have been performed on all Velo Kids Coaches and the majority of the coaches have attended a training with the Children's Advocacy Center.
