First Sprockids Ride: April 22

We are days away from our first ride and I’m getting excited (and a little nervous).  I just know we’re going to have fun and make good friends while we ride.

We still have some space available: (Send this link to your friends)
6-9 yrs – 9:30am and 11:00am
9-12 yrs – 1:00pm

Before our first ride, please send a scan of your medical information and waiver.  We’d like to do very little paper work on our first ride so I’ve included it HERE.

To Bring To Each Ride:

  • Bike: tires inflated, bolts tight, QR tight, number plate secured, saddle at right height, bike is clean.
  • Bike Gloves: full or half finger (to protect on falls)
  • Bicycle Helmet: good fit (covers forehead, doesn’t wobble, chin strap snug)
  • Eyewear: to protect eyes from tree branches and gravel
  • Water for drinking – water pack or plastic bike water bottle
  • Spare tube

Our schedule of rides and locations is ready HERE.

Bike check form is HERE.  Take it to the shop or a friend who knows bikes before our first ride please.

Getting into a new bike (for parents & kids)

If you’re thinking about spring and wondering about where to get a bicycle for your child to ride Sprockids, there are a few great options for you to consider.
1. The MCA has a swap on March 11, 10-5pm at 52 Birchdale Ave.  $2 entry ($5 per family).
img_29462. Bikes and Beyond is a generous sponsor of Sprockids and they’ve got all sorts of bikebandbwebs and gear to get you on the trail with a smile on your face.  The big advantages of visiting a local bike shop (lbs) is knowledgeable service, great after purchase care an
d you know the person who built your bike was qualified and skilled.  In my opinion, no one has saved money by buying a department store bike – they just have less fun.

3. Another option for Do-It-Yourself types is The Wrench.  You can use their shop and build up a bike that you’d be proud of.  You don’t have to have a new shiny bike to enjoy cycling.  Visit Geoff and his team at 1057 Logan Avenue.

And tell your friends about Sprockids, good spots are filling up.

See you on the trails,

Coach Robb
