Our weekly mountain bike club provides safe and positive opportunities for kids to grow mountain bike skills with their peers. Read below for specific details, requirements, dates and registration.
- Program is open to children ages 7-11, who are motivated to ride for approximately an hour and a half.
- Riders are grouped by ability and experience so that each ride is appropriately challenging and fun.
- Younger and older children may be considered if riding ability is appropriate. Contact us if you have questions about your child’s ability level.
- Three 6-week sessions: Spring, Summer, Fall
- Weekly rides are most Mondays from 4:00 to 5:45pm at Tahoe XC.
