The JAFAKIDS Junior MTB Academy focuses on developing mountain bike riders aged between 11-19 years, beginner or expert, boys, and girls, within the greater Auckland region.

The focus is on fun and skills training. It’s about trail riding, learning to ride the natural obstacles you find on single track and getting fit to enjoy the trail networks in our forests.

The JAFAKIDS are coached on a weekly basis throughout the year by our Head Coach, Lead Coaches and a crew of volunteer coaches.

Rides are held on Wednesdays in Woodhill or Riverhead forests,  in groups on a variable calendar.

There are three riding groups, each aimed at different development levels and an appropriate balance of fun, skills development, and racing.

JAFAKIDS was originally set up under the Auckland MTB Club.  In September 2010, it affiliated with the Department of Cycling.

The next muster will be held on the 14 October 2018 at Woodhill, check out our Facebook Events page for more details @jafakids.  Please note that during Daylight savings (school term 2 and 3), we don’t accept any new riders.
