!!!! 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/chidren onto a course.

What is it? 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 expereicned for slightly older kids who just want to dip a toe in.

Is it suitable for my child? This session is for children aged 5+ who can ride confidently over grass and gravel without stabilisers. They MUST be able to get going, keep momentum and control the direction of their bike without additional adult support. Most children at these sessions will be 5 or 6 but if you have a slightly older child who just starting out, wants to attend a shorter session to ensure they like it or is a bit smaller than average then it will be ideal.

What will they need? A well maintained bike with knobbly tyres, a well fitting helmet, appropriate clothing for the conditions on the day. 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 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 playgound. However there are inevitability some 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.
