The School Holiday Mountain Bike Geocache Adventure is an exciting, healthy, outdoor school holiday activity and the perfect way to enjoy Adelaide’s great outdoors! Participants will learn new riding skills then put them to use while hunting for geocaches and hidden clues around the Craigburn Farm trails in the Sturt Gorge Recreation Park.
The mountain bike geocache adventure begins with a basic skills coaching session to teach participants the fundamental skills of mountain biking. We cover topics such as:
- Braking technique
- Gear selection
- Body position & moving on the bike
Our coaches will also provide other handy tips to help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Once everybody is comfortable and settled on the bikes, the adventure begins! A series of geocaches containing cleverly constructed cryptic clues are hidden all over the Craigburn Farm trail network. Participants work as a team using good old maps (not google-maps!) to find and decipher each clue, which hints to the next geocaches secret location and the best trail to get there. Participants will cover over 12 kilometres of trail and climb around 300 vertical meters during their adventure.
Participants don’t need mountain biking experience for this program, however they must be able to ride a bike on two wheels confidently and with good control.
