Find Your Ride

Our year-round Youth Mountain Biking Club for ages 6–14 offers sessions after school and on weekends. Young riders enjoy small-group instruction and non-competitive, skills-oriented fun! Everyone grows together as they explore Hale’s trails and skills park.

Seasonal Sessions

Since this is a club (and not a traditional program), schedules aren’t fixed. Rides and activities change throughout the year. Know that you aren’t signing up for a specific number of sessions—you’re joining a community of riders that charts its own course!

Two weekday afternoon rides from 4:30–6 PM serve beginners (on Mondays) and intermediate/advanced riders (on Thursdays).

A group of people riding bikes on a trail in the woods.

Weekend morning rides (days and times to be determined) combine skill levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. This is a youth club for kids to make friends, ride bikes, and develop skills. We teach them to become confident, well-rounded riders who are part of a larger community.

We call Hale home for most rides and explore 22+ miles of trails throughout its 1,250 acres of adventure. Rides in other locations are scheduled with the support of local NEMBA chapters so we can check out new trail systems.

A committed team of adult volunteers lead and organize rides. The club’s head coach, Ryan Landers, works with Hale’s Mountain Bike Program Coordinator & Hale MTB Camp Director Chris Nichols to oversee the club. Please contact Ryan if you are interested in volunteering.

Payment of annual dues is required to join Hale’s Youth MTB Club, regardless of what time of year you join. Dues cover participation from April through February (the club takes a break during mud season), a jersey, and access to events throughout the year. You’ll also be among the first to know about opportunities that include clinics, races, and camps.

Yes. We ask that each participant has a mountain bike that is in good working order and fits the rider.
