Spring after-school MTB clinics
In May and June Pend Oreille Pedalers are putting on youth MTB clinics once weekly after school until the second week of June. Our experienced instructors Katie Bradish and Marty Andrews will lead their groups on an hour an hour and a half of instructional rides on the trails of Pine Street Woods and VTT.
Who can participate?
Kids between ages 7 and 12 who have well functioning mountain bikes and are able to get to and from Pine Street Woods between 2 pm and 3:30 pm.
Children of various experience levels are welcome, but kids must be able to ride a bike and must have a functioning mountan bike with at least 20 inch wheels. Suspension is not required but is recommended.
We highly recommend you take your child's bike to a local bike shop in the weeks before the clinics begin and have it fully tuned. Children whose bikes are not in working order will not be able to participate and will be sent home.
