Youth Mountain Bike Lessons

Summer 2021 Youth Mountain Bike Lessons

Youth Mountain Bike Lesson registration will open on Monday, April 12th, 2021 @ 7:00am

 

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:  $75.00 per child for an 6-week lesson block.  This fee will include instruction and a Blackhawk Mountain Biking t-shirt.

Intermediate / Advanced

This program is geared towards children (ages 6 or older) who are riding at an intermediate level and who have some experience off-road biking. Through instruction and level progression, we will work with the children to progress their skills and confidence in a variety of conditions and trail types.  Students will learn to add efficiency and speed to their mountain biking skills while also incorporating a variety of intermediate techniques. 

This lesson program is designed for children (ages 6 or older) who have their own bicycle and bike helmet. A "mountain bike" specific bike with gears, while not required, is highly recommended. We will start with a review of the basics of trail riding on the East Side of Blackhawk and quickly progress to riding intermediate and advanced mountain biking trails. The students will be able to progress at their own pace in a safe environment.

Cost:  $75.00 per child for an 6-week lesson block.  This fee will include instruction and a Blackhawk Mountain Biking t-shirt.
