If you’re a parent today, you’re familiar with the struggle with navigating the modern, digitally fueled childhood. What you may not be familiar with is the year over year rise in childhood depression, anxiety, obesity, and suicide. Well, our guest today believes that bicycle riding is a wonderful way to build confident kids and connected families.

After selling the popular local bike shop Fitzgerald’s Bicycles, Scott and his wife Jannine built Buddy Pegs Media and Buddy Pegs Learn To Ride to keep fueling their mission to create happier, more successful children, a healthier lifestyle for families, and social impact.
Thinking “lifestyle business”? Think again. The US Children’s Publishing Industry generates $3.5B annually, The Kids’ Sports Industry generates $15B annually, and children under 12 influence $500B in annual purchasing in the US.
This September (2019), the Buddy Pegs team relocated temporarily to Bentonville, AR to launch a full model of classes, camps, and events across North West Arkansas before scaling nationwide.
