The Bike Club
The Bike Club is a brand new project delivered by Tees Valley YMCA, working in partnership with the National Bike Club organisation.
The objective is to take young people out on mountain bike rides, promoting health & fitness and delivering fun and exciting challenges. It also introduces young people to some of our beautiful countryside.
The rides, carried out across the entire Tees Valley, are usually delivered as part of a larger project but are still effective as a one-off riding experience.
During the larger projects the young people are able to gain a more detailed experience of mountain biking including; ride preparation and planning, developing knowledge of map reading, understanding bike maintenance and how to carry it out on the trail. Young people also get to discover the freedom and health benefits that cycling brings.
All rides are led by a fully qualified and experienced instructor who is fully CRB checked, qualified Youth Workers, and fully trained First Aid staff. We are able to provide 10 mountain bikes and helmets and carry out a full risk assessment before any ride is undertaken.
