Private Coaching | Teens Sessions (ages 12-16)

Course description

So you'd like to give your kids the basics of riding off-road but are unsure where to start. Well look no further.

Our Kids Skills - Fundamentals coaching course will give them the core skills to get out in the woods tackling easy technical trails with confidence and commitment.

Following training they'll see an immediate improvement in their riding and a boost in confidence. They'll understand how changes in their body position, footwork and where they are looking affect the way their bike behaves on singletrack trails. They'll be able to tackle moderately steep terrain, corner with control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease.

The ride was a great success and the boys loved it. It was great for them to learn some new trails and to see how it really should be done by an expert
