Little Rippers is our kids coaching program. We offer a variety of sessions as laid out below. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with your options and have a look through the calendar at the bottom of the page to see what’s on.

Open Sessions

Ages: 5-6 years £10 (1.5-hour session), 7-10 years £20 (3-hour session) and 11-14 years old £20 (3-hour session)

The Open Sessions are guided rides where we can offer coaching advice, hints and tips on how to ride faster, safer and with more confidence and flow. These are ideal for kids who want a one-off taster or progression over multiple sessions without committing to a full course. Your child does not need to have been mountain biking before but we’d ask that they’d have experienced riding on grass and/or gravel surfaces ahead of their session. For more info you can read our blog – linked below.

We have set up the holiday sessions so your child can come to just one, or can complete a course by booking 2 together. Book any session as a stand-alone session, the focus skills are listed in the session description on the booking page. If your child completes a course by participating in both parts they will get a certificate of completion and a goody bag! We have the Fundamentals syllabus for 7-10s and the Jumps and Drops syllabus for 11-14s. Every session will also include a ‘how to’ safety check which starts to get the kids familiar with the mechanics of their bikes and a specific repair lesson, either, how to fix a puncture or how to repair a chain. The sessions will run 10:00 – 15:00, there will be a supervised half hour lunch break (please bring a packed lunch). All sessions will include a section on body position and posture on the bike. Good body position being the cornerstone of everything else we teach – you can not learn to corner, manual, pump or jump well without getting a good understanding of what good body position is and why it works. It is something we consistently work with, with all our coaching clients and can never be practised too much! Dates and times below.

New for 2018 we have added an ‘Advanced Trail Technique’ course for 7-10’s and 11-14’s. This is a one day session and is aimed at riders who want to take their trail riding to the next level, the ride will be faster paced, and the trails more technical. If you are unsure about whether this would be right for your child please contact us.
