Velo Kids Community Rides
Velo Kids (not so scary) Halloween Bike Ride
Grab your favorite Halloween costume, your bike & helmet and join us for a Velo Kids Halloween Bike Ride at Riley Trails on Saturday, October 30 from 10-11:30pm!
We will have a short bike course set up for the littles. ALL AGES WELCOME!
No bike? No worry! Borrow a bike and helmet from the Velo Kids Bike Library!
Velo Kids Community Rides are free, biweekly bike events and they're for everyone!
We believe in fostering community, diversity, and health. Our mission at Velo Kids is to get all kids on bikes, so come ride with us!
How it Works
You bring the kids (recommended ages 2-10), bikes, and helmets. We'll provide the rest.
Bike skill courses including ramps and obstacles
Ice cream or popsicle treats post-ride
Free Velo Kids tech tee earned on their 3rd ride
Trained coaching staff teaching bike safety and skills curriculum
Parents can ride with their kids during the Ice Cream Family Rides. We are asking that parents do not ride during the regular Community Rides. To keep our rides as safe and educational as possible, we want to keep group sizes small (10 kids per two coaches. Parents are welcome to watch from a distance or bike/walk out on the course and cheer on your kiddos. Parents ARE encouraged to bike with their kids during our Ice Cream Family Rides on June 30 and July 28.
We have a lot of exciting kid-centric rides planned for this summer. All families are welcome! Check out our scheduled events and get in touch with us for more details.
COVID-19 Response and Community Rides
If you are experiencing any sickness in your family, please do not come to the Velo Kids rides. Since the restrictions have lifted, masks are not required for riders or coaches. If you or your family feels more comfortable with a mask, please wear it! We will continue to stay abreast of the latest requirements and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the State of Michigan, and the Ottawa County Health Department.
