Our bike riding program at BOA is unique in that the program continues until your child can independently ride a bike. This ensures each child is supported with the time they need to achieve this skill.
Our bike riding program (also known as “Bike Camp” or “Lose the Training Wheels”) is a small-group experience. This program is typically offered in the summer and emphasizes “losing the training wheels.” The age of developmental readiness typically starts near five years old. Older children and teens who want to master this skill are also welcome to participate in this bike riding program.
Spring and Summer Bike Riding Sessions Coming Soon
Sessions are held twice a week (occasionally up to three times a week). These weekly sessions are typically in the afternoon for the duration of the summer, or until your child graduates and becomes an independent bike rider. Depending on family interest and therapist availability, bike riding camp may also be offered during Spring Break.
