Junior Ride at the Old Pine Forest
DORC are happy to announce that we will be commencing the long-awaited Junior Mountain Bikers Program starting on Sat 22nd Jan and again on Sat 29th Jan, 2022.
The program (to be named shortly) will then be run fortnightly in conjunction with the regular Saturday DORC Social rides.
Junior rides will be led by qualified club members, and every safety standard will be adhered to. Ride leaders hold the NT Ochre card and First-Aid qualifications with the majority holding AusCycling coaching qualifications.
The rides will be open to junior riders aged 7 and above and their parents. Riders under 10 years of age will be required to have a responsible parent/adult accompanying them but for older riders’ parents can join in for the ride if they wish.
All participants are required to:
- Hold a minimum of an AusCycling 4-week free trial membership.
- Have a minimum riding ability to ride on unpaved, dirt trails.
- Wear an approved bike helmet, enclosed shoes, and appropriate clothing
- Be riding a safe working bike with working brakes
The Junior Mountain Bikers program aims to be fun, fully inclusive, and safe for everyone involved.
Rides will be conducted together as a group in the spirit of teamwork and group bonding.
