The fun stuff

Like2Bike Skills clinics

 

Children will start with the FUNdamentals course, and progress to the Intermediate, Advanced and Trail side maintenance course. The instructors will advise you , once the course has finished, if they think your child has mastered the FUNdamental skills, and is able to move up to the next level, or if they should perhaps attend another FUNdamental course.

 

All of our coaches are themselves professional mountain bikers and are FANTASTIC with kids.

 

How about booking one of our skills courses for your child's next birthday party?

We can even organise cycling party packs, ‘named’ number boards, mountain bike cakes, etc. The kids will have a blast and learn valuable skills at the same time!

SETUP
