2024 Kids of Mud Program


Registration for Kids of Mud 2024 is now open!

Kids of Mud is the official youth cycling program for the Manitoba Cycling Association. This is a cycling skills development program, unfortunately not a learn to ride program. Kids wanting to join the program must be able to ride independently, can use hand breaks and know how to shift gears. We do ride off road, on trails for up to one hour. 

Ride dates are as follows: May 7, 14, 21, 28, and  June 4, 11, 18, 25  from 6:30-7:30pm

Children between the ages of 6 - 13 years are welcome. Kids wishing to get involved must have a helmet, (must be ANSI/SNELL/CSPC approved) a mountain bike with hand brakes and gears.

Training with Kids of Mud includes safety, braking, gears, hills, riding over small and large obstacles, trail riding, and more.


**The Bikes & Beyond Sports Club Kids of Mud program rides RAIN OR SHINE, with the exception of thunder storms. With this in mind, please dress appropriately for the weather ie: Rain jacket, toque, full finger gloves, mosquito repellent.
