Want to Get Good at Biking?

Posted by chdot on April 29, 2008

Sorry, you have to be 12 – 16 (and live in Edinburgh), but if that’s you – or someone you know – it’s a great opportunity.

Adventure Edinburgh aims to give young people the opportunity to develop skills and interests in walking, climbing and mountain biking. Through this participants are encouraged to become self-sufficient in their chosen activity.”

As it’s partly Lottery funded, sessions are only £5 (including equipment and transport). Places are limited, so it’s not just ‘something to do’ – or cheap childcare!

“You should have a genuine interest in learning more about your chosen activity and must demonstrate enthusiasm and commitment to the project.”

Initially young people will book onto the Introductory Phase “where individuals enjoy sessions that work on fundamental skills and techniques”. Assessment will be made of the “enthusiasm and commitment” and those who have it will be invited to join the Development Phase where they will receive “higher level coaching and advanced trips”.

The dates for the introduction programme are: 7th/8th June, 14th/15th June, 21st/22nd June
