Training typically takes place twice a week, beginning mid/late April and wrapping up at the end of June. Kids wishing to ride must have a helmet (it must be an approved cycling-specific helmet), a mountain bike with hand brakes and gears, and able to ride their bike without training wheels. Training with Kids of Mud includes safety, braking, gears, hills, racing (optional), riding over small and large obstacles, trail riding & trail etiquette, and more.
All participants must have an ABA membership (U17 general or racing license) in order to participate.
Kids of Mud is the provincial program for the Alberta Bicycle Association. It is offered in partnership with our clubs. If you would like to offer the program for your club please contact the office. The ABA is seeking sponsors for the program. If this interests you, please contact the office.
