Typically age 6-13, but must be able to cycle independently. No stabilisers on this course.
What’s the cost?
It’s €10 for the 4 nights, you pay on the first night.
What time do we need to be there?
Be there with your bike from 5-45.
Bike needs to be in good working condition, both brakes working, tyres pumped, handlebars tight, saddle tight. If it’s not safe, NO CYCLING.
Do I need a helmet?
Yes. No helmet, no cycling.
Do I need a parent/guardian?
Yes preferably in case of any mechanicals.
Is it just doing laps of the pump track?
No. There will be an opportunity to use the pump track, but there will be a separate skills area for you to slow down your speed, and speed up your learning. Skills are developed by practicing and patience.
How do I get ready for a race environment if I’ve never been before?
We will have a mini course set up so you can get the feel for the start line, getting through corners and what to do when you finish the race.
