Parents, this weekend is designed to bring young riders together and make friends with other kids who also love mountain biking.

All sessions will be led by our MBP certified instructors and guides, split in groups with 6-8 riders in each, the instructors will ensure trails and skills are appropriate for your young rider.

If you are keen to get involved, we have 5 spots open for parent volunteers to come and ride as tail guides, assisting the instructor with group management. If you would like to volunteer please contact rhys@maydenabikepark.com via email.

Skill Development Sessions

Pump & Jump

Pressure control is the name of the game when it comes to jumping and pumping. This session will focus on the key points to getting in the air safely and consistently. This session is perfect for beginner and intermediate jumpers

Braking & Berms

Sometimes the best way to learn to corner faster is to learn how to slow down! This session will explore braking points and cornering techniques to have you carrying speed and confidence through every flow trail. This session is suitable for all ability levels!
