Ron Wertz will host a kids ride on Thusrday’s at 6pm. Most rides will be at Rocky Ridge but based on group interest, may move to the Lakes on some evenings.
At Rocky Ridge, meet in the front paved parking lot – first left after you enter the park. Rides will start promptly at 6pm and end by 8pm.
**The ride is open to boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 12 years old.**
***IMPORTANT*** All kids must have a parent who will participate in the ride with them. Ron’s grandson will be attending with him and we feel it important that the parent also participate in the ride to both help your child learn how to mountain bike and be available should they wish to leave early.
Depending on the # of participants, separate groups can be established based on ability.
Kid’s should be able to ride 3 to 5 miles and be in control of braking and shifting gears. At times, Ron will also focus on different bike handling skills.
A proper mountain bike, helmets, gloves, and eye wear are mandatory. Although we will stick to the easier trails at Rocky Ridge, a road or BMX bike really is not suitable to mountain bike there.
Please respond to this event invite if you wish to participate so we know how many people to expect. YAMBA Membership is not required to attend this event.
