About this event
Let’s celebrate the GRAND OPENING of Metro’s Newell Creek Nature Park!
Before the festivities start NWTA is conducting a mountain bike skills clinic from 10:00 am – 11:30 am.
For Ages: 8-11
Rider Experience: Beginner/intermediate with ½ – 1 of riding on dirt trails
Pre-registration is required
Grand Opening Details can be found HERE.
Event Location: Newell Creek Nature Park
Event Parking: Hilltop Mall 325 Beavercreek Road, Oregon City
Parking is in front of Regal Cinemas at Hilltop Mall, across Molalla Avenue. It is about a six-minute walk to the park. The parking lot at the park will be reserved primarily for guests with mobility concerns and elderly visitors.
No bike or helmet required! Kids can use one of our Trek Bicycles!
This class is for kids who are already comfortable riding a bike on some “Green” mountain bike dirt trail and grass and down features up to 3-4 inches high. They can stand and coast on the pedals. They can shift gears and corner, but it might not go as smoothly as it could — or at the right time. They are interested in rolling over taller features and riding rolling terrain without pedaling the whole time. They can ride 1-2 miles on a trail or bike path.
During this class: Riders will learn to ride in an organized manner into and out of the trails at Newell Creek Canyon. Riders will work on balancing improving shifting over varying terrain, including trails and rolling terrain, and corner with more confidence, more smoothly. They’ll learn to climb, descend and ride faster; they’ll also learn slow-riding skills to have fun riding more technical trails, including drops 6-10” high – if they want to. The wheels may leave the ground on drops, but we aren’t jumping yet.
Equipment: Participants can use one of our Trek Fleet bikes (& helmet provided)
Participants should wear layers appropriate for the weather, and clothing suitable for a bike ride. Flat shoes, no loose clothing or straps.
