If you are an organization (summer camp, recreation program, after-school program) that would like to offer a "Learn to Ride" class to the children in your community, we have a great resource for you: The Learn to Ride Trailer! http://www.localmotion.org/request_learn_to_ride_trailer
About the trailer:
It is a 6'x8' trailer with over 20 balance bikes* of all sizes, tools, and training materials.
*Balance bikes are bikes that do not have pedals. Children learn how to ride by scooting the bike along and getting a sense of balancing on two wheels
Due to trailer storage capacity constraints, participants will need to bring their own helmets and PEDALED bikes.
How it works:
Request the trailer
We schedule the trailer for you (usually a three day loan)
We train you on how to run a Learn to Ride Class
You pick up the trailer (make sure you have a vehicle capable of towing a trailer, and a person who is experienced at towing trailers)
If you cannot pick up the trailer, we will likely be able to arrange a delivery for an additional delivery fee.
We invoice you $200 after your loan is over (plus delivery fee, if applicable)
( NOTE: Since this is our first year, and we're gauging interest level in this program, as well as debuting the program, the fee is a very low $200. The rental price may rise in subsequent years if the program becomes costly to maintain at the current price)
