MISSION: TO INTRODUCE CHILDREN TO THE JOY OF CYCLING
Our mission is to introduce young children in British Columbia to the joy of cycling and active, outdoor, sustainable lifestyles by empowering them to use balance bikes and engaging them through fun classroom activities.

VISION: THAT EVERY CHILD IN BC WILL KNOW HOW TO RIDE BY AGE 5
Our vision is that every child in British Columbia will know how to ride a bike by age 5 and that cycling will become a core part of their lives, leading to increased health, wellness, and a better environment.

  

Kids on Wheels is an innovative program to introduce young children to the joy of cycling and active, outdoor, sustainable lifestyles. The program teaches and empowers children under five to ride       balance bikes in a safe, interactive environment in their daycares. We come to daycares with our skilled instructors and run a five day program in which children ride balance bike outside, practice stopping and turning and enjoy the freedom of cycling! We also do activities about cycling, like reading books and art projects. They also practice pumping tubes in our mechanic corner, learn about commuting by bicycle as well as travelling by bike. On Friday we end the week with a bike celebration with the parents!

  • allow children to discover balance and steering in their own time and comfort zone
  • help to develop responsibility and better judgment of risks
  • separate steering and balancing from the skills of pedaling and braking
  • gives kids plenty of experience by the time they are ready for a pedal bike
