Join us this summer starting in June for free weekly OIRL youth clinics where we'll work on a few skills, tricks and techniques and then head out on the trail to put the skills to use. The clinic is designed for ages 15 and under and will be broken down by age and/or skill level. Parents may drop off your son/daughter at the clinic and let the instructors teach or you may join in on the fun. Feel free to leave your child and go ride with the adults while the instructors teach your children the skills and rules of the trail. We found when we head out onto the trail, the kids actually listen a little better to the instructors when their parents are not present. We've seen fast improvements in all skills over the first 3 weeks of the program.

We work on safety, trail awareness, the power stroke, balance, track stands, wheelies, overcoming and riding obstacles and more.

Games - bike limbo contest | last person riding | slowest race competition| skills course

We break the trail ride into portions of the trail suitable for the technical skill level of the children. We start with level, easy single-track and slowly proceed to trails with different trail features as the individual skill levels progress.

Clinic and ride is usually slightly longer then 1 hour when we regroup back at the clinic field after riding the trails. Please bring your mountain bike, helmet and water bottle. Please safety check your child's bike prior to attending.
