Youth Apprentice Program 2018


Investing in the future of mountain biking

Here at Endless Biking we’ve made it our mission to foster growth in our community and young local mountain bikers. We're growing our family and are looking for a group of responsible, young mountain bikers that share our passion for delivering endless #goodtimesonbikes.


Our Apprentice Program provides young riders with the opportunity to gain experience as a mountain bike instructor and obtain valuable volunteer hours while being mentored by a Certified Professional PMBI Instructor.

This program is designed to help the young advocates of our sport develop as riders, gain experience and build leadership skills. Not only does this program help open doors within the mountain bike industry, but it also allows apprentices to the gain confidence and skills required across all areas of work!

We believe that many young riders have what it takes to become the next generation of leaders in our sport and we want to be there to help guide them on their way! Throughout the past 14 years of business, we've helped many young riders grow as individuals and find their passion. Now we're formalizing this process and opening it up to even more local young riders!
