Beginners Sessions:

Aimed at beginner riders who are can confidently ride a mountain bike but need some instruction on how to deal with dirt and obstacles.  Will be instructed in safety and how to ride their bike smoothly and confidently.  Suggested age range 7-12 years is a guide only.  Please ask us if you are unsure if this is suitable for your child as it’s based on riding ability rather than calendar age.  Sessions will start with basic skills instruction (eg. pedaling, braking, cornering, body movement) followed by a group ride (5-7km) on the trails.  Must be willing to make new friends, have fun and smile!

              

Intermediate Sessions:

Aimed at riders already capable of riding on dirt but want to push to the next level.  Skills instruction will be aimed at advanced techniques.  Suggested age range 9-14 years is a guide only.  Please ask us if you are unsure if this is suitable for your child as it’s based on riding ability rather than calendar age.  Sessions will start with skills instruction (eg. advanced cornering, wheel lifts, obstacles) followed by a group ride (10-12km) on the trails.  Must be willing to make new friends, have fun and smile!

Advanced Sessions:

These rides are for kids that can confidently ride most trails in Nerang.  We will be pushing 15-20km with an aim to take the riders to locations they might not know about and ride trails they might still need some guidance on.  Lost World for example...  Must be willing to step outside the comfort zone!

Locations:

Nerang Cycle Centre- 2 Hope Street, Nerang.  

Will explore trails like Casuarina, Pete's and Comm Games.

Lawnhill Park - Lawnhill Drive, Nerang.

Easier take off point to explore trails in Happy Valley and for Intermediates to get over the ridge.

Currumbin Border Trails - Border Drive North, Currumbin Waters.

Smoother dirt than Nerang but can test your fitness.  Limited spaces for transfers from Nerang for kids who need transport.  Please contact MTBin Paradise to confirm.
