Kids Club

another school year has started and we had our first bike club meeting of the year. We want over some safety and maint. stuff and got a little riding in.We have some new kids just trying to get things sorted out and some kids that have been riding for a while.A Cannondale pro(Nixon) came buy to help out and the the kids got some good tips. Our first trail ride is this Saterday, they are all amped. Here are a few pics of the meeting.
Carlos was a natural. He learned to bunny hop,and ride stairs in about 10 min.

Colton was really just learning to ride but with some coaching he was having a blast.

A good time was had by all!!!!!!

I'm the dufus on the left in the blue helmet with his head turned when the pic was taken.To bad I don't have a good side.
Like a circus monkey on a stolen Harley......

Running a kids bike club is more fun than almost anything (been doing it for 7 years). They learn faster than you can think of new tests; they gain confidence; they get fitter; and they have fun.

I don't know if USCF has any standard skills scheme, but if you log on to (BSCA is British Schools Cycling Association) you can look at their Trix Awards idea, while British Cycling (USCF equivalent) has the Go-Ride programme.

These schemes are particularly useful for younger riders (primary and early secondary school age) as they provide a visible proof of their improvement.

If you want to swap ideas, feel free to use the private message facility.

Or maybe there ought to be a separate children's cycling club section?
