Family Day with The Cycling Co

Discover Mountain Biking – Family Day Weekend

The Cycling Co. and Bear Mountain Resort have partnered to offer a free kids’ Discover Mountain Biking program on Sunday February 12 (Family Day Weekend).

A child’s bike is their first taste of freedom and we want to make that experience as fun and awesome as possible! Kids feel their first sense independence when they learn to ride a bike. Remember that feeling? Burning around the neighbourhood, ripping over to your friend’s house and just knocking on the door; then riding all day until your parents made you come home for dinner, “when the street lights come on.”

This free session (1.5 hrs for the little rippers and 2 hours for the pre-teen shredders) is designed to introduce kids to the love of riding in a fun, safe, controlled environment with PMBI certified Professional Coach, Adam Walker.

Kids can bring their own bike and helmet or use one of Bear Mountain’s Rocky Mountain Bicycles rental fleet. Pleases note: Bikes and space are limited.
