An exciting and challenging holiday activity to keep your 8 - 10 yr olds busy whilst learning new skills and making new friends.
Cyclewise now offers 3-day mountain biking kids clubs during the school holidays for 8 - 14 yr olds. These progressive kids MTB courses are specifically designed for young riders to help develop their riding skills, build their confidence and give them the technical ability to control their bike and stay safe on the trails. The clubs are split into 2 age groups, with our 'Junior Shredders' sessions for 8 - 10 yr olds running during the mornings and our 'Young Shredders' for 11 - 14 yr olds running during the afternoons.
These sessions are an amazing opportunity to explore the trails at Whinlatter under the guidance of our enthusiastic and friendly staff. Our fully qualified coaches are very experienced in working with young people, hold up to date Safeguarding and First Aid qualifications and are also DBS checked so we can offer a real forest adventure all within our strict safety guidelines.
Whinlatter Forest has an amazing variety of graded trails available to explore. The aim of our 'Young Shredders' club will be to teach the progressive skills required to ride a new graded trail each day, every morning will start with the coaching of new techniques which will then open up a whole new trail to our young riders.
On day 1 we will start with our Green graded trail which is a non- technical route where our bikers will have the opportunity to get to grips with the basics of mountain bike riding.
On day 2 we will progress to our Blue graded trail which has flowing single track, gentle berms, rolling jumps and wide gradual climbs with some technical features to push our young riders.
On day 3 we will advance to our Purple route which is a mix of Blue and some easier Red sections. This will be a really exciting day where our young bikers will have the chance to challenge themselves and consolidate what they have learned during their 3 days with us.
Working on a maximum ratio of 2:10, these morning sessions will offer fun, quality coaching in a safe riding environment. It will allow our 'Young Shredders' the opportunity to learn the skills required to stay safe on the trails whilst making new friends and learning techniques that will make them better riders both now and in the future.
Certificates will be issued upon completion of all 3 days.
So why not leave your child with us for the morning whilst you have the opportunity to ride the trails, go for a walk, grab a coffee or just catch up on some jobs.
