Adelaide Mountain Bike Coaching, Training & Activities - Head for the Hills Cycling

Head for the Hills!

Head for the Hills exists to develop pathways into and through the sport of mountain biking.

We want everybody to have the chance to try mountain biking and we endeavour to create more opportunities for people to have a go. We want to foster a supportive environment for all participants in the sport, no matter why they ride or what their goals may be.

We will work to support all mountain bikers; from people riding off road for the first time through to seasoned athletes looking to fine tune performance. We will work to enhance and expand development pathways and outcomes for all mountain bikers regardless of their level of ability or why they ride, allowing them every chance to progress towards their goals and achieve their best.
