Youth Mountain Bike Lessons

Summer 2020 Youth Mountain Bike Lessons

05/13/2020 COVID PANDEMIC UPDATE!

REGISTRATION HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED FOR BEGINNER / INTERMEDIATE YOUTH MOUNTAIN BIKE LESSONS

-REGISTRATION WILL RE-OPEN ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 20TH-

 

UPDATED SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

Beginner / Intermediate

This program is geared towards children (ages 6 or older), including those who have little or no experience off road biking. Through instruction and level progression, we will work with the children to become more comfortable and confident on their bicycle in an off-road setting.

This lesson program is designed for children (ages 6 or older) who have their own bicycle and bike helmet. They don’t need a “mountain bike” specific bike as any dirt bike or non-road specific bike will work. We will start with the very basics of trail riding on the East Side of Blackhawk and will progress to riding intermediate mountain biking trails. The students will be able to progress at their own pace in a safe environment.

***We will accommodate all skill levels for this lesson plan. We will challenge the more experienced bike riders and start from the very beginning of off-road with the newer bike riders.***

Cost:  $110.00 per child for an 8-week lesson block.  This fee will include instruction and a customized t-shirt.

While we won't be able to offer a designated lesson/night to Intermediate/Advanced students, we plan to make accomodations for more advanced groups within the existing sessions.  Additionally, with the eight week schedule, we will be able to progress further with the groups and try out things we weren't able to get to with the shorter sessions.  We will do everything we can to accomodate all skill and experience levels.

Girl's Beginnner Mountain Biking Course (new this season!)

This course is for girls who have completed first through sixth grade. This fun, girl-paced class will be small, with only six girls.

It is okay if the girls have ridden off-road a bit, they just need to be a beginner off-road biker. We will focus on basic mountain bike skills and developing the girls’ confidence while riding the excellent trails that Blackhawk offers. The girls will be able to progress at their own pace in a safe environment.

The class will meet at the East Chalet for three two-hour sessions on Saturdays: Dates/Times: TBD

What to bring:

  • Girl’s own bike - any dirt, mountain-specific, or other non-road bike will work.
  • Their bike helmet.
  • A snack (like a Cliff Bar) and a bottle of water.

Cost:  $75 per child for a 2-hour lesson block spanning 3-weeks. This fee will include instruction and a customized t-shirt.
