Just a few meters away from Rivus Appartements and the 26TRIX course's legendary jumps, the new bike terrain for kids from age 4 to 12 is to be found.
With the mini kids bike park the Leogang lift company has managed to make family friendliness a top goal. At the foot of the bike park small bike fans can have fun each day and attempt to step into the footsteps of their older role models.
Depending on what they are in the mood for and how brave they are, the kids have two different courses to choose from. One of the two includes steep banked turns, while the other is somewhat flatter. This gives our absolute newcomers a chance to test their skills without the danger of anything bad happening. In addition, they can see how well they handle small drops and can balance out on the flatter course.
And because the youngsters don't want to miss out on any of the conveniences their bigger counterparts enjoy, there is also a conveyor lift to carry them to the start of both courses - a goodie that dirt jumpers can only dream of as they shove their bikes uphill to the 26TRIX jumps. So, if you want to give your kid a fun experience and perhaps spend a summer's afternoon sitting out on the terrace bar at the B3 watching your child making his or her first attempts on a bike, Leogang is probably the best place to head.
