This program is focused on PLAY/SOCIAL SKILLS and RIDING SKILLS PLAY/SOCIAL SKILLS Plenty of time for free play is offered while we move through the trails. Children can play on boulders and logs, and play with sticks to build forts. We encourage pretend play and everything the younger public needs to build their social skills. RIDING SKILLS- through games and riding -Stance and balance, learning to stand up, rolling over small roots and rocks, going downhill with pedals leveled, being relaxed... -Brakes: when and how to use them. -Gears (when available): when and how to use them. AGE AND SKILLS This program is designed for PK-K riders only from true beginners to advanced riders (age relative). Riders are grouped by skills and endurance level after the first session. We also regroup kids who have bikes with no gears together. We use four different levels for our grouping, from True Beginner, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Kids ride with their coach in little pods of three or up to six kids for two coaches. Note that we try our best to accommodate your requests but our coaches have the best perspective and expertise to offer the optimal experience for your child and the other riders. In order to participate in the Tiny Ones program, riders need to have a bike with at least one hand brake and mountain bike tires (no slick tires or coaster brakes please). Instructor to rider ratio is 1:3 to allow for safety, confidence building, and maximum individualized attention to each rider's physical and emotional needs. Each session is limited to 12 riders only. SCHEDULE AND LOCATION Choose between Monday and/or Thursday sessions, from 3 to 5pm. September sessions start from Phil’s TH (at the bottom of the road past the parking lot) October sessions start from the Welcome Center off Century Dr. Our fall program runs for seven weeks from September 12 to October 24.
