Learn to Bike at

The Nature Connection

Our goal is to help kids gain confidence on bikes

Community surveys show that the number one outdoor activity kids want to do is ride bikes! Designed for elementary students in K-3rd grade, this brand new program (in 2020) helps students build confidence on bikes and teaches stewardship of our trails. The Nature Connection staff and volunteers will bring a trailer full of bikes to a participating school and offer instruction to students during PE class.


The Nature Connection Bike Day!


As kids build confidence riding a bike, they need new challenges to develop trail skills. This is why we crafted “The Nature Connection Bike Day” Program. Designed for older kids (4th Grade-High School), staff will lead students on a guided ride at either the Hotchkiss/Crossroads Trail System or the Delta/Confluence Park Trail Systems.
