Kids Dojo is a nonprofit dedicated to building confidence through mountain biking. Their mission is to help kids be active, confident and healthy. They believe that mountain biking builds self-esteem and enables children to experience the great outdoors while keeping their heart healthy and finding an exercise they love and can do for life.
Since 2012 Kids Dojo programs are designed to meet each rider at their ability and enable them to flourish and become conscientious, controlled and confident cyclists. Your child will improve both their cycling ability and their self-confidence in an environment that is safe, fun and has great riding.
