The main race on the Sunday is for 11+ if you have more experienced riders, but on the Saturday there is a 1-stage taste of what MTB Enduro is. A very tame course suitable for very young pre-school kids upwards. Balance bikes, or pedal bikes – all you need is an accompanying adult and a £20 deposit for the timing chip, and a helmet.
We’ll race down part of the blue-grade taster loop very close to the visitor centre, and the kids can do the course multiple times and try and beat their previous time. Parents can ride or walk/run close by while they do to “chaperone” the kids.
Maybe they’ll even come back on the Sunday to watch the main event, we just want to open the eyes of the kids and give them something good to aspire too as they reach teenage. Even if just one thinks they can make a hobby from riding a bike that would be great.

The event is sponsored by “The Break Pad” the bike shop at the Kirroughtree visitor centre.
One day they may progress to our main race 🙂
