About This Activity

For the recreational riders, from true beginners to advanced riders. Riders break into smaller groups based on their skills, endurance levels and goals. Instructor to kids ratio is 1:5 to allow for more individualized coaching and confidence building. DESCRIPTION Riders and their caregivers meet their coach directly at Trailheads. Each session balances a mix of fun rides, endurance building, and skill practice with an emphasis on the following skills from less experienced to more experienced riders: -Position and balance: stability, balancing through a range of motion -Operation of controls: cadence, shifting technique, speed control, breaking -Terrain awareness: trail scanning, line choice, decision making, anticipation -Direction control: leaning the bike, rotational body movements -Pressure control In order to participate in Youth MTB, riders need to have a mountain bike (hardtail or full suspension) with two hand-brakes, gears and mountain bike tires (no slick tires). The bike must be in perfect riding condition. The riders are responsible to bring their bike and their own mandatory gear (helmet, knee pads, backpack, etc…). Although not mandatory, elbow pads, gloves and glasses are highly recommended. SCHEDULE and LOCATION September sessions start from Phil’s TH (lower parking lot) October sessions start from the Welcome Center off Century Drive. In order to offer more challenging trails with different features, the more advanced group may also start from a different location later in the program. Your coach will let you know if this is the case. Each session runs for two hours and half from 3:15 PM to 5:45 PM Monday and/or Friday.
