Purpose: This program is geared towards children ages 6 or older, including those who have little or no experience off road biking.  Through instruction and level progression, we will work with the children to become more comfortable and confident on their bicycle in an off-road setting. 

Qualification: This lesson program is designed for children (ages 6 or older) who have their own bicycle and bike helmet. They don’t need a “mountain bike” specific bike as any dirt bike or non-road specific bike will work.  We will start with the very basics of trail riding on the East Side of Blackhawk and will progress to riding intermediate mountain biking trails.  The students will be able to progress at their own pace in a safe environment. 

∗∗∗  We will accommodate all skill levels for this lesson plan.  We will challenge the more experienced bike riders and start from the very beginning of off-road with the newer bike riders.  ∗∗∗

Cost: The fee is $75.00 per child for a six-week lesson block.  This fee will include instruction and a customized t-shirt. 

Questions: Contact Kelley Linnan at with any questions.

Registration: Sign up online at Go to “Sign in for Memberships, Programs, Classes”, and follow the directions from there.
