RED MTB Session – Ridden mountain bike trails before? Then this session could be just what your looking for! Using fun games and technical practices your child learn new mountain bike skills in a relaxed environment.
As part of a group, we’ll ride the mtb trails, set riding challenges and ensure that we all get a big smile and covered in mud! This session is aimed at children who ideally:
- Can negotiate narrow single track trails containing roots, rock gardens with a mix of gradients including being able to ride a sustained climb.
- Understand how to ride safely in a group and corner using a berm and shift their gears to maintain momentum.
- Can ride in all weather conditions for short durations (an hour).
- Controlling their speed and momentum using their brakes and grip points to maintain or gain momentum.
- Riding intermediate features such as rollable drop offs and jumps.
- Negotiating advanced features such as off camber turns and pumping terrain.
