Tuesday Junior MTB rides are a great social ride for junior riders of all abilities, there will now be some skills coaching incorporated into the Tuesday night rides depending on the skill level of the group.
There are regularly over 80 kids from 4 – 15 riding each week so please have your kids at the Alpine Cycling Club in their group around 4 pm, ready to ride away at 4.30pm during Terms 4 and 1.
Ride groups are based on age, ability, fitness, friendships and riding interests, it is important that kids ride with their designated groups so that we can keep track of everyone and maintain ratios.
Our aim is to keep the group sizes at 8-10 junior riders with two leaders so we always need extra adults to help out on our rides – if you are interested in helping out, please email juniors@alpinecyclingclub for details.
Your child will receive a personalised nameplate, please ensure that emergency contact details are written on the back of that plate and it is attached to their bike every time they participate in club activity.
All children must carry a drink bottle or a small backpack with water and wear close-toed shoes for all riding activities.
Please make sure that your child’s bike is in good working condition every time they ride, simple things your child can do every week are to check their tyre pressure, clean and lube their chain, check that brakes and gears are working and make sure there are no loose bits.
Information about cancellations or changes to the program will be emailed to junior club families and posted on Bright Cyclists and Alpine Cycling Club Facebook page.
Mountain biking is an activity which takes place in the outdoors in unpredictable conditions; the safety and enjoyment of our junior riders is important and whilst we will endeavour to run junior program activities regardless of the weather they may be cancelled in cases of extreme weather.
Alpine Cycling Club respects the right of all children who are members of the Alpine Cycling Club or who participate in Club activities to have the right to feel and be safe. We are committed to the safety and well-being of all children and young people accessing our Club.
