Mountain Bike Club

Mountain Bike Club runs during the Autumn and Summer term for pupils in Year 4. We run a 5 or 6 week course to learn about different aspects of riding. We cover bike setup and maintenance, clothing, food, safe trail behaviour and of course bike handling skills.
After the children complete the course and have proved they can handle a bike we go for a longer ride out in the countryside, usually around 6 miles in length and off-road. We have enjoyed many trips to Slaley and Chopwell using the bike trailer kindly provided by a local charity donation.
Staff have the required Trail Cycle Leader and First Aid qualifications and have years of experience riding and racing bikes off-road.
It is a real pleasure to take part in this club both for the children and the adults.
