At Easy Street Cycling we teach big kids how to ride bikes safely and legally with traffic in Street Skills camps and classes. Easy Street Cycling believes kids who learn to respect traffic become safe, confident and responsible community members. Kids adopt life-long lessons of problem solving, assertiveness, independence, respect for the environment, being active and the joys of riding a bike.
But don't just take our word for it. Check out what other parents have had to say about our programs.
