Kids riding week, Gratwein/Austria

Children usually love riding bikes and want to ride as much as possible. It’s not long before they’ve developed the strength for longer rides, but it often happens that a lack of parental time and local knowledge gets in the way of fullday bike trips. In the Graz Highlands there are some fabulous routes that are ideal for children and young teenagers, as well as “bike playgrounds” for large and small. We select the most enjoyable destinations, bestsuited to the needs of the group, and plan days full of fun and excitement. The rides take place in groups of maximum six children, supervised by statequalified MTB instructors who have been subject to appropriate background checks. There are always at least two instructors present when children are out in public areas.

This week is mainly aimed at children aged 11 to 14.

What you’ll learn

Our destinations will include climbing relatively high summits to enjoy the views from the top, and visits to purposebuilt facilities like enhanced singletracks, pumptracks or dirtparks. Relevant technique will be taught and constantly reinforced, in a way that is fun and inspiring.

Our constant focus is on having fun in nature. During the week, the children also learn to develop a sensitive relationship with their environment – good habits start young.

The programme of rides is adjusted daily to suit the abilities of the participants, to ensure that everyone gets actionpacked days but noone gets overstretched.

What’s included

  • Lunch and refreshments
  • Assistance of a certified and qualified bike guide

Not included

We will inform parents the day before if there are additional costs to expect for the next ride (e.e. liftticket at the local mountain Schöckl, etc.).
