we start riding just before the September long weekend.
Robb Massey, BPE has been coaching children to ride Mountain Bike for 9 years. He is a Sprockids Certified Coach and is a Certified NCCP – Let’s Ride! Community Cycling Initiation Coach. He also writes about cycle touring and riding with kids: robbonhisbike.wordpress.com
Robb and his team of volunteers have a few simple values when it comes to kids riding bikes:
– We ride because it’s fun
– Everyone gets to play (and no one sits on the bench)
– Your potential is nearly unlimited
– Cycling is for life
– Success is a great motivator
– Everyone can learn to tell a bad joke.
Mountain biking is all about having adventure, fun, adrenaline, and discovery. The Sprockids Program teaches young people 55 skills, which enable them to safely and successfully enjoy mountain biking. The program serves as the catalyst in engaging young people, their parents, and others in creating a cycling community where all generations share a common interest and activity, that being cycling and the lifestyle that accompanies it.
