The focus of this session will be to provide kids with basic skills on the bike to ensure they are safe and confident to progress to the next step and ride purpose built mountain bike trails.  This session will include basic skills, riding and games for youth aged 7-10 years with a Certified Coach.  

This is perfect for kids as an introduction to mountain biking as we can use the limestone tails to learn and apply basic bike skills and build confidence without the kids having to bike up or down any significant hills or negotiate tree roots for the first time if they have not done any/or very little single track trail riding before.
