Family Fun Days

We are so lucky to have great biking infastructure here in the Tweed Valley which provides amazing trails to ride at Glentress & Innerleithen in a really family friendly environment making mountain biking a fantastic year round family activity.


Our Family Fun Day has been designed to help parents develop their confidence and knowledge when taking their family out on the trails. We will show you:

  • How to carry out a pre-ride bike safety check
  • How to fit helmets correctly
  • Coaching in bike handling skills and core cycling techniques
  • What to carry on the trail - kitbag essentials
  • Basic trailside repairs - how to replace an inner tube and repair a broken chain


We mix the day up with coaching, lots of fun games and activities and practice our newly learned skills on the Green Route and sections of the Blue route at Glentress Forest.


By the end of the session you will feel more confident taking your family out biking for the day and will have started a family activity which will provide you with years of pleasure.


"Finlay and I both thought the course was brilliant, he's been bike mad since! I thought it was the right length and a great mix of learning techniques through games and riding.

You are really great with the kids and I'd def recommend you to friends."  Terri August 2015


"I thought the course was excellent and the kids had a great time....Berm Baby Berm was an excellent way to finish the day and did a lot for the confidence and had them keen to come back.

I think I'll have trouble keeping up with them before too long :-) Joss August 2015
