BreakAway Rides Will Teach Your Kids to Mountain Bike With Confidence

The Junior MTB Skills Workshop Series at BreakAway Rides will turn your kids into champion mountain bikers

Cape Town is paradise for cyclists. But if you’re looking for heaven, you must venture into the city’s mountain and forest paths. Mostly it’s adults you see hunched over handlebars, but there are so many beautiful routes and biking events in Cape Town, that getting your kids involved seems a natural course. Plus mountain biking is such an amazing activity for children – if they know how to ride safely.

BreakAway Rides in Green Point wants to make mountain biking and events more accessible to families by teaching your kids.

At their Junior MTB (mountain biking) Skills Workshop Series instructors show kids how to hold their own on two wheels. The workshops are split into beginner, intermediate and advanced groups to best suit your child's capabilities. These workshops are suitable for kids aged between 6 to 16 years old.

The first session is on Saturday, 14 October 2017, and the programme runs until Saturday, 9 December 2017.

PROGRAMME FOR THE 2017 JUNIOR MTB SKILLS WORKSHOP

BEGINNER (6-8 YEARS)
Kids are taught the single track formation, which includes breaking, steering, pedaling and balancing without support. They will also learn more about their bikes, gear selection, effective braking, navigating small trail obstacles and riding on a single trail. Ever heard of the “attack position”? You’ll learn that too.

INTERMEDIATE (9-12 YEARS)
Once they’ve mastered the beginner skills, kids will move onto dynamic weight shifting, balancing, navigating rock gardens and sand areas, cornering skills, riding small drop offs, jumping and dealing with steeper terrain.

ADVANCED (13-16 YEARS)
The final stage of the workshop will focus on fine-tuning all of the MTB skills that you need to make yourself a champion. Kids will enjoy technical sessions, as well as uphill and downhill route options.

BOOKINGS FOR THE 2017 JUNIOR MTB SKILLS WORKSHOP IN GREEN POINT
When you buy a 10 ride pack (which covers 10 sessions/lessons), the total cost is R3000 which works out at R300 per session. The 10 session pack is valid for four months. If 10 sessions is too much, they also have a 5 session pack, this time the total cost is R1750. That works out at R350 per session and the package is valid for three months.

If you do not have a booked session and you would like your child to take part, the drop-in cost is R400 per child.

A shuttle from BreakAway Rides in Green Point to the tracks is charged at R100 per child. The track venues alternate between Meerendal, Bloemendal, Contermanskloof, Hoogekraal and CWC Durbanville. The schedule will be sent to patrons ahead of time so they know which venues will host the lesson on which day.
