After School Skills for Girls
The Head for the Hills team is dedicated to encouraging and supporting young girls who are interested in mountain biking. We are trialling a slightly modified version of our After School Mountain Bike Skills program that is just for the girls!
The program is designed for girls aged 10 to 14 and is delivered on the Craigburn Farm Shared-Use Trails. There are no pre-requisites for participants and the program is perfect for beginners, so long as they can ride confidently on two wheels.
