Obstacles, Jumps & Drops for Kids


Kids just love getting airborne! And with the Bare Creek Bike Park in Belrose opening soon, your kids will benefit from learning how to jump proficiently, confidently and, most of all, safely with our introduction to obstacles, jumps & drops clinic. 


This clinic is designed to be fun and educational for riders ages 7-13 yrs and over the course of three hours we’ll revisit and dial in some key fundamental skills. Then, with the use of our custom designed ramp system, we’ll equip them with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to fly safely on obstacles such as drop-offs, tabletop jumps and gap jumps.

Is this clinic for me?

This clinic is suited to children who have attended one of our MTB Fundamentals clinics or who can exhibit solid intermediate skills such as front wheel lifts and who are generally confident at trail riding but, of course, not that confident on drops and jumps.

We also offer a version of this clinic for 'big kids' aged 14+: Obstacles, Jumps & Drops
