!!!! Important COVID19 Secure Booking Information!!! you can only book your own children onto a course – Due to the need to have all information and T&Cs signed off electronically from a parent or legal guardian you can only book you own child/children onto a course. You can book siblings in one booking but please make sure all information for all siblings is on the form.  If there are any medical conditions or injuries please make it is clear which child is affected.

What is it? In this session we will cover the core skills of great body position, posture on the bike and safe braking. Good body position will equip the rider with a greater sense of confidence, stability and control. For all our coached riders from 5 to 100 the skills in this session are always where we start. Taking this module is key to understanding the concepts needed to progress to cornering, pumping and wheel lifts, jumps, drops and all other advanced technique. If you have done this at the 7+ level it may still be worth repeating for practice and experience with the older age group.

Is it suitable for my child? This session is suitable for children aged 11+ who can ride confidently over grass and gravel without stabilisers. They should be able get going, keep momentum and control the speed and direction of their bike without additional adult support. If your child is 11+ but not super confident, small for their age or not been on a course with us before they could join a session with the 7+ age group as a great way to boost confidence.

What will they need? A well maintained mountain bike with knobbly tyres, gears and minimum 24″ wheel. A well fitting helmet, gloves and appropriate clothing for the conditions on the day (more details on this will be provided in session information pack after booking). Knee and elbow pads not required but are recommended.You can find more details here. This document is also available at the bottom of the main Skills Academy webpage.

Can I hire a bike? Yes, we have Whyte and Islabikes  for hire. Please book ahead. These will be an additional cost.

Is mountain biking dangerous? Children are no more likely to suffer injury whilst mountain biking than they would be playing most other traditional sports that they would do at school or in the playground. However there are inevitability some inherent risks. Please read the T&Cs before signing your child up. By agreeing to these you are accepting the risks involved. Please get in touch for a chat if you have any concerns. Company risk assessments available on request.
