school holiday clinic:
These July School Holidays we are holding a two-day-clinic that will develop a child's skills and confidence on a mountain bike. Catering for beginners through to the more confident these clinics have a focus on fun with a sense of adventure in a safe and supportive environment.
Kids will be split into groups according to skills and confidence. The first session will focus on the basics of downhill mountain biking to build up their confidence and basic skills. This will consist of, games, drills, obstacles and the Pump Track. Once these have been mastered a 'Cappy Licence To Ride' will be presented which indicates kids are ready to progress to using the chairlift. Here they will continue to progress their bike skills whilst exploring the trails of the Park.
There will be a fun race/event on the Friday of every week that will be free for School Holiday Clinic participants to enter.
