Wanted: mountain bike for 10 year old girl

Post by rich m. » Fri Mar 08, 2019 7:57 am

My 10 year old daughter is afraid of riding on the roads (close call with a motorist) so I thought I might try mountain biking with her... Kind of a catch 22: She would be more likely to enjoy it on a decent bike, but I am not keen on dropping a $1000 on a new bike if it doesn't take. Anyone have a decent loaner she could try out... and potentially buy if it meets her exacting standards? Cheers,

Rich

No bikes floating around the youth program right now, but several kids, but 2 boys and 2 girls 9-11. We find having peers is what motivates most kids (something we learned from the coffee culture of ts :)).

Re road time: In winter we’re all off road: mtb Sundays, cross adventure (Colquitz, Swan, thetis, Glendale trail-based loops Wednesdays, plus 2 gym days and a spin day.

Spring schedule is Monday track (ride out supervised via e and n), tuesday tt and ttt practice on the waterfront, Wednesday goose or lochside to Vcl, Thursday track via e and n, Friday tba (probably hill day or gym day), Saturday mtb, Sunday road ride or race. So out of traffic mostly. Kids welcome to try before committing.
