Youth Groups

Mountain biking in the great outdoors can be a fantastic and positive experience for young people and students. 

Here at Dales Bike Centre based in Yorkshire we have over 18 years  experience in mountain biking with all manor of youth and school groups.

A mountain biking session delivered by us is very structured and great care is taken to ensure the safety of all involved.   Our aim is to ensure everyone gains the absolute upmost from the experience. With good tuition we watch young people develop and improve personal riding skills, build relationships, gain knowledge, develop and be inspired.

Instruction is provided by our professional, very experienced and highly qualified team of mountain bike leaders.  All of which have many years of experience leading youth groups not just in mountain biking but many other adventure activities.

In place we have very clear operating procedures, carry out risk assessments of all rides, copies of which can be provided to your organisation.

Our location within the Yorkshire Dales National Park is well positioned to access the mountain biking trails.  The area is best suited to students from Year 8 and above to really engage with it.

We can adapt mountain bike sessions to fit in with your program whether it be full days, half days or part of a multi day activity week.
