In 2017 Headwinds was thrilled to host our first Juniors MTB training program. Guiding young riders through the fundamentals of bike care, technique and safety, training up strong smart riders of the future. We are fortunate to have continued the Juniors program in 2019 and are looking forward to another great Juniors season for 2020.
Junior sessions are open to kids 5 years old and older that can pedal on their own (no training wheels or run bikes). We will attempt to group kids by ability once we have a better idea of the skills of the group and turn out. The sessions are volunteer based and meant to simply get kids out riding and having fun. We will need some parents to help out as spotters and ride with the group. MTB skill nights and Road training Days will be in a controlled area, such as an empty parking lot.
All participants that are riding with the group, including parents who choose to ride with us, must be Headwinds Members and complete waivers.
Due to COVID-19 all Junior Programming has been put on hold. We will reassemble the GROM ARMY when it is once again safe to meet & ride in groups. In the meantime check out the GROM ARMY Facebook page. It will have drills, maintenance tips, and challenges. Can you earn your GROM ARMY sticker? Feel free to share the page and post some of your skills and achievements.
Hopefully be on the trails together soon!
