TCBA YCC Free 2024 Summer Biking Camp 


Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA) Youth Cycling Club (YCC) proudly hosts the popular FREE 2024 kids biking camp from July 23th to July 26th. The camp is half day and runs from 9:00AM to 12:00pm. We will meet at  Hawk Island Park every morning at 8:45am.  

Camp Overview

We will ride through beautiful scenery on well-maintained trails in the Greater Lansing area, including the river trails. Gain experience at your own pace as you develop riding skills, learn how to bike safely from local biking experts and local police, understand how to maintain and repair your bike, as well as having fun making new friends with a tasty treat at the end. 


We also want to make this summer camp not just about biking, but to create a meaningful, educational, and enjoyable experience for us. Thanks to our partners, this year’s camp will be more fun and exciting.
