Overview

Our mission at Gorham Bike & Ski is to get more people on bikes. We believe in the power of the bicycle and how a bike and a bike ride can transform peoples lives.

Our #littleshredders 6-Week Mountain Bike Skills Course is designed to give riders 7-12 years of age a chance to experience trail riding in a safe, inclusive environment on beginner friendly trails.

 

Details

Our 2020 program is in the planning stages and we should be announcing dates and locations for an expanded program for next year. Stay tuned our email list, Facebook and Instagram.

But to give you an idea of what our program offers, in 2019 we ran our program on 6 consecutive Tuesdays at Winnick Woods in Cape Elizabeth. During each of the 6 weekly sessions, participants received instruction from our experienced staff about a different foundation skill and had the opportunity to practice that skill.

Skills we focused on were General Trail and Riding Safety, Body Position & Balance for increased control and negotiating terrain and obstacles safely and effectively. Oh, and did we mention we had TONS of fun?
