Youth Age Groups
No matter the age or riding experience of your child, we have a group that is suited to them!

These age ranges not only ensure that your child rides with their peers, but also has fun and enjoys the North Shore trails! We tailor our lessons / rides to different age ranges and take pride in ensuring each rider gets all that they can from their experience with us.
