You can never start them too young. From the age of 7 riders can become members of MTBA, and MAD MTBC, allowing them to participate in training and friendly racing in a fun and safe environment.
2017 will see the clubs first holiday training camp for this age group during the Easter school holidays. Young riders will then be able to hone and develop their riding skills at regular skills development sessions tailored specifically to their level on Sunday mornings.
Racing will occur in the hour prior to each of the bigger club races – to keep it safe and fun as well as allow parents to watch and encourage their budding racers.
Sunday mornings will also have adult, youth and some female only sessions running so the whole family can get involved.
Keep an eye on the MAD MTBC Facebook page for more information and opportunity to register for the camp and sessions.
