Mountain Biking for Kids
Our experienced instructors will teach proper off -road techniques of shifting, braking, hill climbing, descent, and body position. This class is designed to be an educational ride as well. Students are also taught how to preserve multi-use trails and co-habitate with other trail users and their environment. Trail etiquette and safety will also be addressed. Students should have at least 4 months experience riding a bike before enrolling in class. Mountain bike and helmet are provided but students are welcome to bring their own mountain bike.
