To join, bikers should have a bike with a minimum wheel size of 20 inches (gears are a plus!). Our program focuses on instilling safe riding habits and mastering basic mountain bike skills like braking, balance, and body positioning.

Wondering if this level suits your rider? To participate, they should be confident riding a 2-wheel bike without training wheels and have proficient use of hand brakes (coaster brakes not allowed). Prepare your young cyclist for a thrilling adventure filled with learning and joy
