The sessions start off with 30-45 minutes of skills and drills, followed by a 45–60 minute ride through the trails at Rotary Centennial Waterworks Park so that participants can practice the skills they’ve just learned. On occasion, we will take the kids outside of Waterworks Park to ride to other destinations along the river. This will be discussed with the group to make sure that all parents are comfortable with this. BCC coaches will keep the group together and make sure that everyone is riding within their limits. Each session will build on the skills learned in the previous session.
