Kim's Gym

What is more satisfying than seeing kids achieve? At Glide Bikes, not a whole lot tops children being able to learn and grow, except for maybe seeing kids having fun! Thanks to Kim’s Gym 4 Kids, who hosted a bike-riding workshop for youngsters aged from 3-5, we were able to help instruct and supervise kids of all different abilities and help them gain skills and confidence when riding a bike and balancing!

Kim’s Gym 4 Kids is a great program located in our very own home town of Wilmington, NC. It’s a place where kids are exposed to athletic opportunities, from team soccer and basketball to yoga and Zumba. Of course they also have the occasional bike riding workshop as well! The gym is the perfect place for preschoolers to get excited about physical education by making athletics and training your body something that’s fun and rewarding!

 

Glide Bikes is excited to announce that during the workshop we were able to see several kids graduate from one of our Glide Bikes balance bikes to a two wheel bike, all with NO TRAINING WHEELS. Our very own Glide Bikes guru and certified instructor, Mike, described his favorite part of the workshop as, “seeing how much fun the kids were having and how excited they were to share their accomplishments with their parent’s afterwards.” It doesn’t get better than that!
