About FAmily Bike Vibes

The Family Bike Vibes aim to cater for the whole bike family - no matter how small the children are. The four-year-old daughter should have just as much fun as the passionate family man. This takes place over a whole weekend, sometimes together and then again individually in the different level groups. The focus is clearly on fun and adventure. The event format therefore offers just the right platform for bike families of all kinds to enjoy an unforgettable family weekend in the Bike Kingdom.

Level groups for bike lessons

First experiences are gained on the bike

Prerequisite for the group:

  • Controlled driving off & stopping
  • Riding eight
  • Braking on flat terrain
  • First experience in the Skill Centre

Prerequisite for the group:

  • Riding up and down
  • Braking off-road
  • Off-road bends
  • Riding over small obstacles

Prerequisite for the group:

  • Riding root and stone fields
  • Lifting the front wheel & relieving/lifting the rear wheel
  • Braking on steep terrain
  • Riding steep turns and off-camber sections

The tours are suitable for people who do not yet have much bike or e-bike experience and are beginners on single trails. The trails are easy with large bends that are not particularly difficult. Most of the riding is on firm meadows or stone paths, where simple braking techniques can be practised and applied. Roots and rocky passages are not to be expected.

You have discovered your passion for biking and have already gained some experience. Your bike base is solid and you ride safely on single trails. Pedalling for 2 to 3 hours has already become a habit for you. Trails with small roots and individual stone elements along the way don't cause you much trouble and you look forward to new challenges.

You can ride steep and blocked trails. Technically demanding trails are chosen, which demand numerous technical challenges from you. The trails you ride can include loose scree as well as challenging root passages. It's over hill and dale and you are one with your bike. You will have no trouble pedalling for several hours.
