JIF kids mountain bike sessions for advanced riders


Now that the longer evenings have made a welcome return, the Jif kids will again be hitting the trails from Wednesday the 3rd of April. With our coaching provision, we plan to deliver an enjoyable ride coupled with elements of structured training to small groups of around 4 to 6 riders in each. Coaches will be rotated to ensure that a cross section of skills (and fitness) is covered.

This session is for experienced riders who are both comfortable in a mountain bike environment and have the fitness levels needed to ride a hilly course for one hour. Normally, we’ll let the parents know when their child has the skills, fitness and attention span required to be coached safely and enjoyably in a mountain bike environment. However, if you feel that your child is ready for that challenge or would like to work toward that point, please feel free to discuss it with one of our coaches; Laura, Andy, Carwyn, Ian, Jake or Simon. Please note – to get the best out of the coached sessions, flat pedals are recommended and preferred. We would also like the riders to wear JIF kit.

(6pm meet for 6.15pm start, Fforest Fawr carpark, Tongwynlais, CF83 1NG each Wednesday. If you’re a parent willing to help support the group please let us know. Members only – please check for eligibility).
