Trikes to Trails was born when Bart Gillespie, local professional mountain biker, wanted a program where his young girls could learn to enjoy mountain biking with their peers. Now heading into our 7th year Bart’s young girls have graduated the program and are Jr. coaching the youngest crew!
Our program focuses on introducing young kids ages 6 – 12 to mountain biking. It provides professional coaching in the following areas: mountain bike skills, cycling safety, and trail etiquette. Our primary focus is to help kids develop an early love for cycling. #morekidsonbikes
