What would you tell a child who was struggling to learn how to ride a bicycle? Could you hype them back up if they started to wobble? Help believe in them as they found their balance? Would you like to share the gift of bike riding, physical activity, and the outdoors?

You can be a proud part of this pivotal childhood moment as you help kids achieve an important healthy goal and gain a lifelong skill. The kids bring their bikes, we bring a pedal wrench, and you bring the energy, optimism, and applause!

Enthusiastic volunteers in our Encouragement Coach program help keep kids moving and motivated as they gain confidence on two wheels. No special skills are needed! If you can be upbeat and positive we need your help!

Our popular Learn to Ride classes are held outdoors and led by certified instructors who teach kids the safe, easy, and effective 'balance first’ method of learning to ride a bicycle. Volunteers may also help check-in families or guide children through the loop course.
