The Spring session will focus on mountain biking skills for the beginner to advanced mountain biker.  The program allows girl and boys ages 7-14 to explore the many single track trails at Wirth Park while also providing them with some bike skills that they can use for a lifetime! At the end of the session kids will have the opportunity to test drive the first Adventure race in the summer Loppet TRAIL KIDS Mountain Bike Race Series.

During practice, kids will be coached on the following bike skills: Attack position, pedaling efficiently, controlling of speed, cornering confidently, handling any terrain, riding with vision, racing and pacing skills.
