Little RIPAs Sessions

  /  Little RIPAs Sessions

Let your kids Ride!

Let the kids ride their mountain bikes! Ride In Peace Adventures we want see the mini shredders rippin’ on the trails.

To help we have LITTLE RIPAs holiday camps and after school blocks to get the wheels rolling. 

We also offer Private sessions, half day (3 hours) or why not book a party for groups of 4 to 8, for kids aged 8 – 80!  

We like to match the trails and facilities we teach on, to the age and ability of the riders, so we pick between a number of local trail centres depending on what we’re doing.

GO MTB
