Join us for a 4 week youth mountain bike program this summer! During the program you will work on skill-building through drills, games and fun activities. We will focus on safety, trail/riding etiquette, skills and basic bike maintenance. We hope to instill positive life skills onto our riders. Our coaches encourage goal setting, problem solving and decision making.
Cycling is a lifelong activity that kids can do well into adulthood and enjoy for the rest of their lives. Starting young and gaining a solid appreciation for the sport and the land that they ride on is beneficial to the longevity of their involvement in the activity. We aim to promote positive values such as respect and empathy for yourself and others, appreciation, community and responsibility for the environment.
What you can expect to gain from the program:
What you need to bring everyday:
-Mountain bike- tuned and safety checked
-Water bottle- a Camelback or hydration pack is recommended
-Adequate apparel- layers recommended
We will teach skills on the trail while riding. The groups will be divided up based on skill level. Parents must pick-up kids under the age of 13 from the drop-off point/trailhead.
The program begins July 8th and goes every Monday and Wednesday for 4 weeks. We will ride from 10 AM-12 PM and meet at the Gateway Trailhead. Location is occasionally subject to change, but all participants will be notified well in advance of a location change.
Cost: TBD per athlete.
Ages: 7- 18 years old, must be proficient & independent @ riding on trails
