WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The 2hr lesson begins with the Foundations of Skills which includes body position, trail awareness, bike balance and controls such as gears, braking and basic cornering to ensure all riders are instinctively handling their bike correctly. The session builds on to learning the various skills required to master maneuvers such as cornering, basic obstacle riding and jumping using techniques you see the world’s best riders using. The end result is you will master, or at least leave with the skills to practice to better control your bike and ride with increased confidence!
There is a lot to be learnt in a relatively short period, but we’ll monitor the kids, weather conditions and encourage regular breaks. This is designed to be a fun learning experience with friendly, compassionate coaches so the kids can enjoy riding more.
Skills learned will include the following and more.
- Correct body positions (riding)
- Bike Set Up tips
- Trail Awareness
- Basic Cornering
- Brake and Gear control and use
- Reading the terrain better
- Choosing better lines through turns or technical sections
IS THIS FOR MY CHILD?
“My front wheel slides out on gravel or in corners.”
“I have a mountain bike but I’m scared to ride it on mountain bike trails.”
“I would just like to learn properly.”
“I would like to keep up with Mum or Dad better!”
“I already ride a lot and I’m now getting quicker but I’m need better control!”
“My riding friends are all better than I am.”
“I can ride ok but struggle to get over logs, technical sections or downhills.”
If any of these statements sound like you or your child, then perhaps this group program is for you.
