Age 5+ Open Session and Taster

These open sessions aim to give younger children a fun experience, building confidence and planting the seed of great technique along the way. They are ideal for your child as a one off or for progression over multiple sessions. Designed primarily for children aged 5-6 they can also be a great experience for slightly older kids who just want to dip a toe in and find out if mountain biking is for them.

Open Session: 1.5 hours, £15: Provsional dates TBC by 8th July:

11/07 – 9am. 18/07 – 9am. 1/08 – 9am. 12/08 – 2pm. 15/08 9am. 29/08 9am. 5/09 – 9am.

Age 7+ Coaching Pathway, Course and Session Information

Our 7+ coaching pathway starts with the fundamentals then takes children onto more advanced skills, technical features and trails whilst progressing their riding in a safe, enjoayble and exciting learning environment.

It’s really important to us that all participants have a really positive mountain biking experience. For this reason we would ask you to take some time to look at the options and book them on an appropriate session for their ability.

11+ Coaching Pathway, Course and Session Information

Older riders tend to have either been through our 7+ coaching pathway or are a little more confident to start with, having been riding a bike for longer. Again, we would encourage you to have a look at the description for each session and book your child onto one that feels appropriate for their ability. If your child is 11+ but a little less confident or less experienced booking them onto a 7+ session to begin with could be a great confidence boost. If you are unsure please give us a call and ask to speak to one of our coaches.
