WHICH PROGRAM SHOULD I CHOOSE?

CHOOSE MINI SHREDDERS

  • Is your child aged 3, 4 or turning 5. Are they riding a run bike or a two wheel pedal bike? Are they just starting out and looking to develop mountain bike skills? Does your 3 or 4 year old already shred on the trails? We have groups for run bikers, new 2 wheel riders and those already comfortable on the trails. We have programs in the spring, summer and fall.
The DFX MINI SHREDDER program will help your child learn the skills they need to know to get started on XC trails.
