Community Cycles will not hold our Kids Summer Bike Camp in the summer of 2022 due to staffing & organizational challenges with Covid-19. Please check back next year!

Join us for a great week of kids summer bike camp!

In these one-week bike camps, based in our shop near Downtown Boulder, kids learn:

  • safe bicycle riding skills,
  • basic bike repair and mechanics,
  • navigation, using bike maps, google maps, and apps, and
  • Boulder’s bike paths, through bike ride field trips with fun stops along the way. It’s time to get outdoors!

Past summer camp participants have started their own bike repair businesses and found jobs in bike shops! During this week, we will take long bike rides for enjoyment, strength, and health, culminating in a 14-mile route (or longer, depending on the group).

Low student-to-instructor ratios ensure maximum learning, safety, and fun!

Kids Summer Bike Camp Activities

Community Cycles day camp is one of Boulder’s most popular summer programs for youth. Each day begins with stretching and a team-building exercises. Campers will then learn and practice basic bike maintenance skills in a safe environment under the guidance of a professional mechanic.

Campers will go on field trips to fun destinations, practicing navigational and safe riding skills along the way. Nature walks, frisbee games, and rides at Valmont Bike Park are all on the menu.

One of our top goals is to give participants the skills and practice they need to safely get around Boulder via bike.

Kids Bike Safety Requirements

All participants need a bicycle and must bring helmets, SPF 30 sunscreen, sunglasses, and a sack lunch. Campers must wear closed-toe shoes. As we learn bicycle mechanics in our shop and use the bicycle blender, we need campers to follow our safety rules and listen to their instructor’s guidance. We review rules of the path in class and ask parents to review safety rules with your children at home too!
