A POPULAR mountain biking course has been a great success in getting younger children more into the sport.

The course started in February and is half way through its five weekly events.

Coach of the group, Buzz Lane, said: “We ran a pilot course last year and there seemed to be enough interest so it is back again now.

"The children seem to really like it; they all seem to be fairly enthusiastic which is exactly what we want from children their age.”

The course for 10-14 year-olds is held in Hodgemoor Wood between Beaconsfield and Amersham.
