This is a guided ride on the Kingdom Trails network for kids from ages 8-14. Your child must arrive equipped with a safely functioning bike that has at least 6 gear options, and hand brakes. As well as proper attire, a bike helmet, water and nutrition that they can carry themselves.
Parents are welcome to join the fun, but it is not necessary, unless your child needs one on one attention or there is a question as to whether they may be able to stay with the group.
Participation is free for Kingdom Trails members and $5 for non- KT members.
Ride locations will vary weekly (on the KT Network and the Burke Mountain Bike Park) and each monthly schedule is posted on the KT Kids Ride Facebook page and through email. Drop off and pick up locations vary week to week.
