What does Biking offer

The information listed here is intended to help Leaders who would like to arrange Biking for their section. It also has information for Leaders/Adults who would like to get involved with this activity. 

Made up of Explorers, Network Members and Leaders from around Derbyshire, the Bike Active Support Unit is a team of experienced cyclists offering a range of bike related activities for members aged 8 and upwards. The team offers day long sessions covering a range of cycling activities which can give young people more confidence and inspire them to ride bigger and more challenging routes. With safety equipment and a selection of bikes available, the sessions can make full use of the exciting new mountain bike track located at Drum Hill Campsite or come directly to you.


Each session contains the following elements:
• Safety and Maintenance Sessions
• Mountain Bike Coaching
• Guided Rides

Activity Badges
Our Biking team can also support the requirements of the Cub, Scout and Explorer Cycling related Activity Badges.
