The Folsom Bike Jr. MTB Program is focused on our next generation of mountain bikers. It does not matter if you are brand new or if you have been riding a mountain bike since you were 3, riders between the ages of 8 and 14 years old are invited to participate. We’ll have skills practice and ride the trails near Folsom Lake. Even if you have participated in this program before, we promise there is still more to learn and our curriculum will continue to help you build your skills toward whatever mountain bike goals you have!
When: Every FRIDAY from September 7th to October 26th (8 weeks) - Practices will be from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
PLEASE NOTE: All practices take place in State Parks, therefore, there is an entrance fee to get in. We highly recommend purchasing a State Park Pass and supporting the local state parks. You can purchase one here.

Details: All practices will be approximately 90 minutes long and include skills, drills, and a ride. Our skills practices and rides will be tailored to riders’ abilities – giving younger/newer riders step-by-step direction on certain skills and providing more challenging drills and obstacles for the more experienced riders.
