Beginner mountain bike skills camp
Join the Beyond the Mud trail school for young cyclists who want to get off-road on their bikes and have adventures on singletrack. These cycling camps will build mountain bike skills like cornering, braking and gear selection on varied terrain, in a fun and safe environment.
Our coaching follows the International Trail Ability Grading framework (or ITAG for short!) Children will work towards a grade criteria. Upon meeting the criteria they will be awarded a coloured Paracord Bracelet which indicates their ability and skill level should they go to other coaching session. The Framework is geared around the skills required for each band of trail and is a valuable tool for inexperienced riders to gauge whether they’re ready for the next big challenge!
All children will have to carry their own hand sanitizer and the coach will not carry water bottles for children. Strictly no bike swapping during sessions.
Sessions are 90 minutes long.
Starting from Juniper Car Park at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, Horndean. * Parking is not included you get a free 20 minutes to drop off and pick up.
