Mountain Bike Course

Juniors

Off road cycling is a popular activity many now enjoy. Aside from the health, fitness and social elements it brings along, this is probably your preferred choice for your child. The traffic free option wins every time!

Our Junior Mountain Bike course is all about how to ride off road according to the terrain and conditions. The courses are aimed at children aged from 7 to 16 and are similar in format to our basic mountain bike course

Our MTB Instructors use the fantastic MTB trails and off-road cycle routes throughout Waterdale, Drinkwater and Philips Park. The graded cycle routes vary in skill level from green family and blue beginner routes. Once the participants are more confident in their ability towards the end of the day, we also ride some of the red trail sections at Philips Park. All our mountain bike training courses are made to ensure the children learn whilst having fun.

There are many trail centres across the UK all offering some great routes of varying difficulty. With supervision your child will feel confident to tackle all the basics, which all the family can then enjoy together.

Our session is about building the fundamentals and how to approach trails safely
