Kids / Youth Summer Trips
Five Day Trips - £350 Dates July 11th ( sold out) July 18 & 25 ( sold out ) Mountain bike camp - 5 days away in one of the best areas for mountain biking. We will be staying in the heart of the Cairngorms with access to endless single track. My intention is to improve the riders skills with coaching sessions, an appreciation of the environment which we will be riding through and an emphasis on the importance of self sufficiency. Pick up will be at 0900 hrs on the first day and we will aim to arrive back about 1700 hrs at the end of the trip, unless the weather is good and the kids want to keep having fun.
The accommodation is in The Eco Pods at Badaguish( pictured left ) there are kitchens shower blocks and a bike park. Also the famous ring challenge over the pond. (pictured below)
A rough idea of the rides I would like to do are
Drumnadrochit single track and in the afternoo Inverness pump track. Fort William single track not the down hill course .Although depending on the group this could be an option. Single track around Aviemore, Carrbridge, Feshiebridge and Glenmore Dunkeld, Glenlivet, Laggan and Learnie Red Rocks
There is an option for a two day Canoe wild camping experience on Days 4-5. This is an amazing experience where the participants are taught to be self sufficient and how to act responsibility in the environment we will be living in based on Leave no Trace principles. There is an extra cost of £30 due to the extra cost of a college assisting me providing the experience.
3 Day Biking £180 ask for availability or if you have an awesome group let me know.
Last year I ran several trips during the summer holidays, these were mainly for groups of kids but one was for family groups. The focus was on Adventure! taking riders to areas and trails that were away from trail centres. They can be based at Badaguish near Aviemore, Dunkeld or in the Tweedvalley All transport and food is provided
Bivvie Adventure - £80
I have 4 sets of bike packing kit so the intention is to head out on a mini adventure - sleep under the stars, not too remote, cook your own food and get back to basics. The routes will include some great single track and hopefully a very memorable experience. Just bring a bike, sleeping bag and a sense of adventure and I will provide the rest. The final route will be dictated by the riders abilities and where they are coming from I am happy to pick them up and organise a route not to far from home.
Kids / Youth Coaching Sessions -cost £10 per week for 1 1/2 hours. We are running some sessions for kids and youth riders in Carrbridge Monday & Wednesdays and Aviemore Tuesday & Thursdays they are for any ability and age. If you are interested in either please get in touch or if you have a group that you would like regular sessions for please contact me.
The video above is from some of my summer trips, not all with kids but it gives you an idea of what is possible on a bike and how much fun you can have on my trips.
