The program is open to children aged 9 to 13. Children 14 and older are encouraged to come out to the regular group rides on at Naughton Wednesday evenings 6:30 to 8:30 and Sundays 10:00 to 12:00. Check out www.waldenmbc.ca for times and locations of the Saturday rides that will rotate between sites in Sudbury.
The sessions are designed to give children the basic skills needed to enjoy riding on single track trails. The program sessions focus on the skills necessary for bike control, getting over obstacles as well as climbing and descending hills. Included are discussions trail etiquette and learning how to set-up the bike for safe riding.
Each session will consist of a "skill of the day" with games or drills and a trail ride on the lower section.
This is the third year we have offered this program and are keeping the cost low to encourage participation. Enrollment is limited to 12 as we have a limited number of coaches. We have more coaches being trained this spring, so may be able to offer more sessions.
