Weekly Youth Rides 

As a child, riding bikes with your friends or peers can be a very enriching experience.  Running from May to mid August of 2023, Bakker's Trailblazers will offer twice weekly instructor lead rides for all kids age 8-13.  The rides will help develop your childs confidence on a mountain bike, build group riding skills, and teach them the technical skills required to tackle more challenging terrain, in a safe and progressive manner.
