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 10-15 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!
