Class Experience

Bike Club: for ages 8-15

  • Monday-Friday 9am-5pm at the Kincaid Park Johdpur Trailhead
  • Skills groups: beginner and intermediate/advanced


Mountain biking is an engaging, challenging, and exciting sport. The youth summer bike club is for beginning to intermediate & advanced riders who want to gain fitness, endurance, and confidence, and develop a strong foundation riding mountain bikes and single track trails.


Students will be placed in beginner or intermediate/advanced skills groups on the first day based on a group ride, skills observations, and challenge course. Bike club will meet each rider where they are at and challenge them, in a safe and supportive environment. Riders will learn new riding techniques, bike maintenance and care, how to pack for different types of bike trips, and will level up their skills and comfort level. Each week of bike club will focus on a specific set of skills and a different style of Mt. Biking, from cross country styles to cyclocross.

What To Bring

A note on "lunch". 

  • We don't have lunch - we have multitudinous food and water breaks as kids need them throughout the day. We drill the mantra "if you wait until you're thirsty to drink water, you've waited too long." Part of teaching youth self-sufficiency and accountability is teaching them that safety is everyone's responsibility, and if anyone in the group feels hungry, they can call a snack and water break or safety concern as soon as they feel the need to do so. Our coaches also make these calls often throughout the day, because it is also very easy to demonstrate a skill or concept when kids are a little tired and eating-it makes them ready listeners! We don't list this in the itinerary because it occurs so frequently, and as needed, and with many reminders from coaches.
