Bike Like A Girl!

 

Tahoe Donner’s Alder Creek Adventure Center will be home for two unique three day camps for girls this summer developed by the new non-profit organization Bike Like a Girl! The three day program is being offered June 29,30 and July 1 as well as July 20,21 and 22nd. The camp will include both on and off bike fun and will run from 9-12 pm each day.

The Bike like a Girl program was founded by three top notch female cyclists who were passionate about giving girls the opportunity to get excited about being on a bike. The girls will learn bike maintenance and handling skills, develop self-confidence and social skills, and develop an understanding of the science, engineering and math of cycling. And of course they will get to ride bikes with a couple of amazing cyclists.

Co-founder Julie Young says, “We developed a curriculum thanks to talented and creative educators that utilizes the bike to teach the STEP curriculum. Our program also opens doors and provides stepping stones for girls who may gravitate to the sport of cycling at the competitive level. We also want to help girls who may not be able to afford the expense of cycling, to participate in the program by providing equipment and program scholarships.

We are super excited to hold camps at Tahoe Donner because they have developed a fantastic trail system that facilitates skill development, and best of all provides opportunities for exploration and adventure.”
