Get out and ride!
There are many benefits of bicycling, from health to personal, social and environmental. The Brainerd Lakes Area, with our many paved and off-road trails, has the potential to be the cycling capital of Minnesota. The KIDS BIKE FLEET is a YMCA/Crow Wing Energized 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.
The LARGE Bike Fleet includes 2 adult bikes and 34 youth bikes and the SMALL Bike Fleet includes 2 adult bikes and 22 youth bikes
