Kids Mountain Biking Club

Mountain Bike Club - goMTB

Our Childrens mountain bike club offers fun and skills in an afterschool club environment following the Scottish Cyclings goMTB Award Scheme.

goMTB cycling club Northampton
We cover all skills required to become a competent mountain biker along with plenty of games and even some bike maintenance (so parents don't have to pump up the tyres and mend the punctures all the time!).

We are an accredited goMTB centre and at the end of the half term 7 week block we can assess children under the goMTB award scheme and offer certificates based on their riding skills. For more information on the scheme please see Scottish Cycling.

You do not need not accompany your child on these courses but you will need to supply them with a drink, suitable mountain bike (with off-road tyres), helmet, gloves and rain clothing.

If you would like a current plan for the September/October session please contact Helen.
Instructors
All instructors are Enhanced CRB checked and fully insured with copies of paperwork available on request.

As these courses are children specific there is no need for them to be accompanied by you on the sessions however they will need to be collected at the end of the course by a responsible adult.
Ages
The club caters for ages from 8 years to 13 years with a maximum of 8 riders per instructor.
