CANCELLED – rideTECHNICS Weekly Junior MTB Skills Program – Canberra Term 3 – Saturdays

August 28 - 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

$420

Genuinely improving kids’ bike handlingJunior MTB clinics

Our weekly term-long program will focus on teaching kids how to ride properly – safely and smoothly with full control – while having fun and making friends. Building skills, confidence and enjoyment on the trails will be top priorities.

Carefully formulated

Our kids MTB skills programs are designed to get riders progressing through a series of key skills and trail types. This is more than just babysitting on bikes doing random trails. Our head coaches are all parents. And all of our staff are qualified and highly experienced rider-coaches, with first aid training and WWCVP cards. We use refined and proven methods to teach safe and effective bike handling, so children can simply enjoy their riding regardless of ability and their specific riding discipline.

Further details

Once you’ve signed up we’ll email you further details on exactly what we’ll cover in each session of the program. As well as meeting locations, what to take along, what to expect, and more.
