Mountain Bike Family Blast

Ideal for complete beginners, our tasters will provide a fun family introduction to the fantastic sport of Mountain Biking on the new Castlewellan Trails.

Specific to family beginners (no experience necessary) this session will cover bike choice, fitting/adjustment/maintenance and use (forest trails/pump track) followed by an intro to the trails and trail riding (starting with blue and then potentially using the red loop).

To provide families with the knowledge, skills and confidence to undertake Mountain Biking on-going.
