What is the FOX Kids Ride Session?


The folks from FOX, Mountain Bike Rotorua and MDA Experiences have teamed up to bring skills clinics that are fun, informative and bring confidence to your kids riding. Our professional team will provide an awesome day out for your kid playing bike games, getting confident on various trails in the forest all the while learning or improving their skills to make riding more enjoyable.


So where is this?


Where else but the world famous Whakarewarewa Forest Mountain Bike Park, otherwise known as the Redwoods or Mecca!


How does it work?

All you have to is choose a date you want your kid to come out (see dates below), choose which level they should be riding (Beginner or Intermediate), send us an email and we'll confirm your booking, that simple. Below is a breakdown of the the two programs:

FOX Kids Ride Session - ages 6-8 or ages 9-12

10:00am - Arrive, Sign Waiver, Meet Instructor, get kitted up, meet other riders


10:15am - Skills and games


10:45am - In to the forest. Riding and continuing with skills and challenges as we go


12:15pm - Lunch


12:45pm - Riding again till 2pm

We have set dates for the FOX Kids Ride Sessions that your child can join in on, and these require a minimum of 2 kids for the session to proceed.


Alternatively if you can get 4 or more kids together, we can put a special session on just for you and your group.


How much?


This full day of riding which includes your professional instructor is $120 per person or we can include a rental bike, safety gear for the day (FOX elbow pads, FOX knee pads, FOX gloves, FOX helmet) for $150 per person. Maximum of 6 kids for every instructor.

Anything else?


At RED LIGHT status only private tours are available, but at ORANGE & GREEN LIGHT public versions are good to go.


Just make sure you bring clothing suitable for riding (shorts, t-shirt and jacket if the weather is looking grim), no open toed footwear, lunch and it is a good idea to bring a hydration pack as kids bikes don't have drink bottle cages.


If this does appeal and I can follow up with booking proposal of best match.  Alternatively if you were interested in getting a group of similarly experienced friends together then we can look to customise something to that end, or if you were wanting a full coaching programme to be created for your needs then we are also really happy to chat about bespoke options going forwards too.

Thinking about getting your kid in to mountain biking or wanting to advance their skills and confidence? Then the FOX Kids Ride Sessions are for you.
