How to properly fit your child's mountain bike


Pedal Pals Camp

Ages 4-5 // Level 1, 2, & 3

Pedal, pedal, pedal, that's what we're going to do! Your child will develop fundamental skills and a passion for biking. Say goodbye to training wheels and pedal-back brakes. We strive to teach participants to brake safely, improve balance and coordination while keeping children stoked about biking. Television will be the least of their concerns as they embrace the outdoors and embark on daily adventures. We help provide your little rider with the skills, endurance and love for the sport that will allow your family the opportunity to bike together. After a week of camp, your young rider will be at the door asking to go for a family bike ride.


Level 1



This level is geared towards kids who are almost ready to ride on their own without assistance but need a bit more practice and instruction. Run Bikes are recommended over training wheels. Your little one will improve their balance and have more confidence when riding.

In this level your rider will:

  • learn a general introduction to biking
  • learn how to correct body position and braking techniques to improve control while riding.

Equipment Requirements

  • Half shell helmet
  • Knee/elbow pads (optional)
  • Water bottle/camelback gloves
  • Bike repair kit
  • Suitable mountain bike with hand brakes (such as Norco Charger, Norco Run Bike, balance bikes or bikes without training wheels)
