MTB Experience Club - KIDS

MTB Experience Club - KIDS

The MTB Experience Kids club is part of the MTB Experience Club. 

As active members of the club, the young mountainbikers can participate in the weekly training. We work together on their physical condition during adventurous trips through forests and fields. During the rides they get familiar with the most important basic skills of the sport where FUN is key.

The experienced monitors guide the group every week in a safe way in different terrain and pass on their knowledge so participants can build up experience and confidence in mountainbiking. These trainings can perfectly be combined with the MTB for Kids Basecamp of The Shelter during school holidays for technique training! 

It's also possible to register as a passive member of the club. The participation in the weekly trainings is not included but, just as the active members, the insurance via cycling federation Cycling Vlaanderen is included. Young bikers can enjoy their fantastic hobby with the necessary insurance! 

The club is suited for kids between 8 and 12-years old as active member and for kids/youngsters between 8 and 17-years old as passive member. The youngsters from 13-years old can join the adults for rides if they are accompanied by at least one adult member of their family.  

Check out our club policy so you are are aware of all the agreements and conditions.

How does the club work for active members? 

The training takes place every Saturday between 9.30AM and 11.30AM throughout the year. There are no trainings during June and the school holidays. 

Every week we make a trip where kilometers depend on the participants, the weather conditions and the intended purpose: distance, altimeters en/or parcours training.

Where do the trainings for active members take place? 

The training are given on our location near Leuven (Korbeek-Dijle and Meerdaal Forest). We start every training at The Shelter. This is where parents drop off and pick up the participants, where participants can use the facilities and rinse their bikes after the training.

To ensure quality we forsee a maximum of 20 participants per group.

Participants need to bring their own mountainbike and wearing a helmet is obligatory to participate.
