Join us for a 5 week mountain bike skills series for kids and parents! This program is a multi-tiered approach that is designed to teach both adults and children the fundamentals of mountain biking in a safe, fun and interactive way. During this workshop, parents will be able to get out and go for a ride with other parents while working on mountain biking skills. Meanwhile, the kids will develop basic skills and confidence on their bikes in a separate group.
Week 1 will be at Arrowsmith Bikes in Nanaimo where everyone will get their bikes checked over by a mechanic and make sure that helmets fit so when we get on our bikes, everyone is safe and ready. We will also be going over some basic skills in the parking lot such as braking and trail etiquette.
Weeks 2 to 5 will be on trails where we will ride and practice our skills. Locations will be confirmed by Week 1. Each session will be 1 ½ hours long.
