Let’s Ride Some More! Fall Revolution is Back.
Extend the riding season with a few more fun-filled sessions with RMCC this fall! The fall program is intended as a continuation for riders that participated in the Spring Youth Revolution or Summer Youth Mountain Bike Camps, but riders new to RMCC are invited to join us too.
The Youth Revolution program offers a developmentally-appropriate youth mountain biking experience where having fun is always on the top of our agenda. Kids will acquire, refine and master the fundamentals of mountain biking in a social and energized environment while exploring some of our awesome local trails with their peers and our great coaches.

*Plus RMCC membership/insurance for riders who have not already participated in a program this year.
One parent volunteer is required to assist the coach and group at each session. This will ensure that each group has two adults (including the coach) at every session. Please indicate on the registration form if you would be able to help – must be at or above riding level of the group. Parent helpers must be RMCC members – a complimentary one day membership/waiver is offered.
We require each participant to have a cycling-specific helmet with CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) approval, and a mountain bike of suitable size that is in good working condition. Some sessions may need to be re-scheduled or cancelled due to weather.
Groups will have a maximum of 8 kids, and should minimum numbers not be reached, the group may not be offered.
