This 6 week after school mountain bike skill development program is designed to help start the mountain bike season off right!  

 

A fun, social and safe program designed for children of any riding ability, and an opportunity for children to learn and experience:

 

  • The basics of riding off road to more advanced bike handling skills.

  • Challenges that suit the level of the child.  

  • Trail etiquette.

  • Bike maintenance.

  • A deeper connection to nature.  

 

Whether your child has plenty of off road experience or none at all, they will learn at their own pace and will be grouped accordingly. 

 

Essentials needed are:

  • Basic cycling skills, children must be able to start bike on their own.

  • A bike in good working order (must have gears and hand brakes!).

  • A properly fitted helmet.

  • Bike gloves.

  • Water and snacks (!!!).
