Program Information

The After School MTB Skills program generally runs for 18 weeks over the Summer (Term 4 & 1) and Winter (Term 2 & 3) seasons. The program aims to give riders the skills they need to enjoy recreational mountain biking in a safe and sustainable manner. It will also prepare them for higher level development programs designed to support riders interested in competative mountain biking.

We will focus on a range of on and off bike skills, developing the riders:

  • Bike handling and balance
  • Control and trail reading
  • Technique (discipline independent)
  • Trail etiquette for shared-use networks
  • Risk assessment and management skills
  • Knowledge of participation opportunities

Please note:
Participants must be able to ride on two wheels confidently and with good control to complete this program.
