YMCA Kids Bike Fleet Partnership

How To Rent The Kids Bike Fleet

The KIDS BIKE FLEET is a YMCA / Crow Wing Energized / Easy Riders Bicycle & Sports Shop partnership to help get kids on bikes, promoting a safe, active and healthy lifestyle.  Through the Bike, Walk, Fun! curriculum or by just getting kids out on a group ride, the bike fleet is an easy way that schools and youth serving organizations can either start or reinforce a love for cycling.  

Crow Wing Energized was awarded a grant by the NFL in the spring of 2017 for the creation of two youth bike fleets. These youth bike fleets are primarily used by the elementary schools in Crow Wing County to facilitate the Walk! Bike! Fun! curriculum in the schools. Priority will be given to groups, organizations and agencies that are providing specific bicycle education (bike rodeos, classroom instruction, etc.), however the fleet is available for general group rides in the summer.

The kids bike fleet is owned by the Brainerd Y.M.C.A. If you are interested in renting the fleet go to https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a48aaa629a7f58-kids to complete the pre-reservation form. Reservations are for a 1 week period. Please send inquiries to kidsbikefleet@blymca.org.
