Kids Love to Bike, We Want Them to be Safe

One of the greatest joys in life is to be able to jump on a bike, especially as a kid in the summer. What’s even better? Going to a week-long Bike Camp in Downtown, where you can ride the Indianapolis Cultural Trail to parks, tour top attractions and attend events in the heart of the city.

Beginning in June, kids age 8- to 15-years-old will also learn bike safety and maintenance at  Bike Camp at the YMCA at the City Market. They’ll hit the NCAA Hall of Champions, IUPUI and BGI for bike safety and maintenance learning and do a themed craft or STEM activity after each day’s ride. Kids BYOB (bring your own bike) and store them at the YMCA for the week.

WHO: 8- to 15-year-olds
WHAT: Six, week-long Bike Camps that will ride throughout downtown
WHERE: YMCA at the City Market
WHEN: Beginning June 8, 15, 22 and July 6, 13, 20 | 6:30 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Friday
