Learn To Ride Charlotte @ Arbor Glen Rec Center
Mar 28 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Stoked for our friends with Learn To Ride Charlotte, bringing yet another opportunity for you or your kids to “Learn to Ride”. Be sure to check this event out & tell them we sent ya! Best part it’s FREE and this event will be on a most rad designed setting. A full painted “mini-city” with roads, traffic lanes & signs giving the first batch of brave ones a smile for every mile or in this case “city block”. What is this thing called “Learn To Ride” you ask? Read below….

“It’s never too early (or too late!) learn to ride a two-wheeler! Kids of all ages and grown-ups, too, can Learn to Ride a bike using the tried-and-true “balance bike” method. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s a skill that will last a lifetime! Join the fun, and this FREE opportunity to Learn to Ride!

Learn to Ride is a not-for-profit, 100% volunteer series of events to grow Charlotte’s cycling community one new cyclist at a time. Learn to Ride is made possible in partnership with Bicycle Sport and Trips for Kids Charlotte, with support from Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, Mecklenburg County Public Health, and well-run media + marketing.

The event is geared to kids (of all ages!) and parents of kids, who want to learn to ride a bicycle without training wheels. Parents should bring their kids, their kids’ bikes and helmets. Don’t have a bike or helmet? Don’t worry – we have loaners! We’ll walk the soon-to-be-riders through the process, which is to sign in, check bike and helmet fit, remove training wheels and pedals, and lower the seat so the rider can stand comfortably over the bike. When the time’s right, we’ll reinstall the pedals – and turn this “balancing act” into practice with the pedals in motion!

No advance sign ups are necessary – just show up ready to have fun!”

UNC Charlotte Earth Day Festival @ University of North Carolina Charlotte- Main Campus
Apr 1 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Stoked to bring our passion to the campus of more than 30,000 students and 4,000 faculty members this EARTH Day. While some call it “April Fools Day” and yea, we’re known for a prank or two, it’s no prank. As we looked into 2020, we wanted to ensure we’re promoting the effort for all fronts. This one, specifically towards sustainability and how working with today’s youth in a fun environment during our “Rad Little Rodeo’s” can be one of many steps towards the overall goal. While we know, it won’t happen overnight & it takes more than a Rad Little Rodeo, but does it????????

So come on out to the campus of UNCC on April 1st between 10am-1pm. We’ll be on hand with 50 other opportunities to see how “sustainability” can fit into this thing we all live on, called EARTH!

A Rad Little Rodeo for the Victory Ride @ NC State University’s Centennial Campus
May 16 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm

Honored & Humbled to get the privilege to bring our Rad Little Rodeo for a second year to help in the Fight Against Cancer for the Jimmy V Foundation”. We’ll have on hand a new layout with features that are “Dad Tested & Kid Approved”. So we encourage those adults whether they just put in 100 miles on their road bike for the VICTORY RIDE or just hanging out to try & keep up with their mini-me’s on the course this year.

We’ll provide helmets and 4 balance bikes for the ages of 18 months to 5 years old. We also will have 2 custom steeds for the “big kids” aka adults to attempt to keep up with the little ones, so go on start stretching & packing in those carb’s now! Interested in more of this thing called The Victory Ride? Read below and we look forward to seeing you there. 

May 16, 2020: The Victory Ride to Cure Cancer presented by Braswell Family Farms is a one-day charity cycling event set in the beautiful rolling hills of the greater Raleigh, N.C., area. The ride will start and end on NC State University’s Centennial Campus, near downtown Raleigh.

Join us as we go the distance in the fight against cancer, united in making a difference. 100% of rider-raised funds benefits cancer research.

The V Foundation funds research at world-class facilities where critical discoveries about cancer are made. When you raise funds for the Victory Ride, the majority of proceeds will be awarded in North Carolina.
