SPROCKIDS MOUNTAIN BIKING CLASSES FOR KIDS IN SAN DIEGO
We saw a flyer for Sprockids at our local bike shop when we were getting repairs done and thought how perfect are these classes right now?! They're outside and naturally socially-distanced, so we signed him up immediately for their next after school program. (Little bro wasn't old enough yet; 7 was the minimum age for the after-school class that we signed up for.)
They have month-long after school classes, one and two-day class sessions and family rides too. Class sizes are small, maybe no more than 8 kids, and there were two teachers at our session so the teachers were able to give a lot of attention to each rider.
In their month-long class, my kids learned a lot of biking techniques and skills with practice sessions on a soft sloping grassy hill at first. They set up mock-ramps, bumps and big sticks to practice riding over. They learned when to sit and when to stand up and how to power up hills and be safe going down.
After two weeks of this it was time for the trails. They practiced their new skills on trail rides over the next two weeks with their teachers helping them. Parents were welcomed to join in on these trail rides with their own bikes too.
Geared mountain bike with hand brakes, weather appropriate clothing and closed toed shoes, bike mounted water bottle or hydration pack, snack and a fun positive attitude!
My boys have always pushed their limits on their bikes, but now they're riding stronger and I feel better knowing they actually know what they're doing now. lol
I was very impressed with the quick responses from the program and from the teachers when I had questions. The teachers inspected every kid's bike for maintenance before each class session and I felt very safe leaving my kids in good hands with very professional and experienced instructors. I would highly recommend this mountain biking class.
(This is not a paid sponsor and we didn't get a deal for sharing about it. I paid fully for our session and they didn't even know I have this website...until now. ;) I'm just sharing this because I loved our experience and think that you would too.
