Coach led weekly mountain biking club providing a safe and fun environment for youth mountain bikers to learn how to ride the RAMBO trails. Mountain biking is an extraordinary experience for energetic youth! RAMBO priorities are that the kids have fun, build trail confidence, trail maintenance and develop an everlasting passion for riding and being outdoors. Mountain biking is a great sport for any age and developing strong foundational skills will sustain area mountain biking for years to come.
Recommended Ages/Ability: Ages 7 – 13, beginner to advanced abilities welcome; we split into different coaching groups based on ability, fitness, and age. If your child is outside of the recommended age group, please contact the program directors at Riders4RAMBO@Gmail.com for consideration.
All riders are required to be RAMBO members, either individually or covered under a family membership. Membership benefits cover liability insurance while riding the RAMBO trails. Youth membership rate is $20 annually while a family membership is $100 annually. The team is limited to 20 riders to maintain coach/rider ratios. Waiting lists will be generated as necessary.
Good working pedal bike (no training wheels). Hand brakes and gears are encouraged but not required. Wheel size is not a factor as long as the bike fits the rider. Riders must have a properly fitting, approved helmet (CPSC, ASTM, or Snell). Riders must wear closed-toed shoes. Either flats or clipless pedals are acceptable. Riders must have a water bottle or bladder with water for every ride. Suggest a water bottle cage on the bike frame.
Riders must have appropriate clothing for the weather. Appropriate riding shorts, gloves, and glasses are strongly recommended. It is also a good idea to bring a rear flashing light and apply sunscreen and/or bug dope, depending on ride time/location.
All communication pertinent to the RAMBO Riders is handled through the GameChanger App. The App provides all information to include a roster, contact information for riders and coaches, messaging, schedule availability, practice plans, and more. Once a coach or rider is registered for the team, our staff will send an invite through email for the application. If you are an existing RAMBO member or would like to join the group, please confirm your interest by emailing Riders4RAMBO@Gmail.com.
Classes will be on Thursdays from 4:30PM to 5:30PM, beginning May 19th and continue through July 7th.
