#5

#6

Sorry guys, but you need to be 16 with parents permission.

The ride leads are not guides or instructors and so we can’t take on the liability.


#7

ok thanks


#8

Interesting, I didn’t know there was an age restriction on the rides. Makes sense from a liability standpoint.

ya it kinda sucks but i understand it

I agree, it does suck.

We are in a world where we are hyper aware of kids safety when it comes to organized events. This often results in events not happening at all.

There are programs like @rideeast and @TrailFlow provide where they offer certified MTB coaching. However, that costs money and are a limited number of sessions so may not be what someone your age wants in a weekly ride for fun.

Last year I was volunteering with the mountain biking program with my daughter’s school and it took me 4 trips to the RCMT for the background check paperwork and something like $50 of my own money. So that become a dis-incentive for volunteers with kids programs too.
