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.

Celebrate Your Wins!

Having recently turned my attention away from my own skills development to begin focusing on helping others, I often feel like I am going backwards on the bike. This year, for the first time, I am eligible to compete in the Veterans category and I think we can all agree that age and accumulating responsibilities outside of racing are two of the most worn out excuses on the trails. And I have certainly claimed them both myself! In recent times, I have been having to put my ego aside and accepting that some things that were once well within my level of ability are now outside of my skill set. It’s not easy and, at times, extremely frustrating and demoralising. Personal anecdotes aside, many riders at every level go through peaks and troughs in their careers and for many different reasons. While enjoying the good times is easy, it can be difficult to find satisfaction when things aren’t going so smoothly on the bike.

Celebrating personal wins is something that mountain bikers do best. It’s not just our own achievements that get us pumped, but others’ too. When things are going well, it’s high fives all around! But it’s pretty easy to get down on your riding too. Sometimes we just have a bad day, conditions aren’t great, we haven’t been riding much, or maybe one section of trail is just psyching us out big time. It’s times like these we can become fixated on the bad stuff and forget to pat ourselves on the back for the good things we do…

Guided Course Pre-Ride | 2018 SA DH Round 1

Head for the Hills, along with Inside Line Mountain Bike Club, will be offering a guided track walk and pre-ride to beginner riders throughout the 2018 race season. These group sessions are designed for riders who are new to the sport or riders who feel they need some help getting down the track. They are not for riders looking at improving their times simply to snag a place on the podium!

This weekend plays host to Round One of Inside Line’s Giant Adelaide South Australian State Downhill Series which will be held on the “Secret Connection” trail at Fox Creek. Although the trail is short, it is steep and technical with a fast finish line sprint section. At 8am on Saturday, Tyson Schmidt will lead a group track walk before helping the group ride down the course in a safe and controlled manner.

The track will be open for others to walk from 8:30am.
