Program Outline

Beginning Sunday 10th November, Gold Coast Mountain Bike Club will be running a 5 week progressive mountain bike coaching program for kids ages 5-12 years. Special consideration will be given to children outside these age brackets.  Come along and join ‘Nellie the Gnome’ for some fun and skills.

During the first week, riders will be graded into groups based on ability.  Each week, each group will spend 40 minutes practicing a skill, then stop for a 10 minute break, then finish with a 40 minute ride to practice our new skill on trails.

We will be following on from the very successful Coo-tha kids model which gives us the opportunity for inter-club races and challenges later in the year and early next year.The club is hoping to continue this programme each term and riders will progress up the groups each term.

Parents helpers are welcomed (even needed) to help during the sessions.
