Bike Camp to Teach Confidence on the Road

Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition will hold a Bike Summer Camp from June 13 to 17 at Carpinteria Children’s Project. Participants will learn handling skills, traffic laws, a little bike maintenance and take daily rides to fun destinations based on the ability of the group. This week-long camp will increase your child’s confidence and skill to get to their destination safely. The Coalition’s certified bicycling instructors will share their love of riding and teach the responsibility that comes with it.

The camp is open to children 10-14 years old. Campers must be able to ride a straight line, turn and start and stop competently. Sessions are 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday, with 12 participants maximum. Participants must bring a bike and helmet. The cost is $150 per participant. Scholarships and earn-a-bike opportunities are available. For more information contact Kim Stanley-Zimmerman:
