Mountain Bike Programs for Schools
One of our main goals at Head for the Hills is to ensure everybody in South Australia has the opportunity to learn the skills of mountain biking. That’s why we have developed a range of programs for kids aged 10 and up that can be delivered inside and outside of school hours. We are here to help young people enjoy Adelaide’s unique mountain biking culture in a safe and educational environment.
After School Mountain Bike Skills
Head for the Hills offers after school mountain bike skills training for year five to eight students. The program currently only runs in the Mitcham area but will expand to incorporate the Northern and Eastern suburbs soon. The training is delivered by Mountain Bike Australia accredited coaches and instructors over a six month period at various trail networks in the area.
School Holiday Geocache Adventure
There’s nothing like spending the school holidays outside of the house and exploring the hills by bike. Our school holiday adventure activities get kids off the couch, away from screens and enjoying the outdoors! The School Holiday Mountain Bike Geocache Adventure is perfect for kids aged 11 – 14 and suitable for beginners who can ride on two wheels confidently.
School Mountain Bike Camps
If your school holds a mountain biking camp for students, Head for the Hills can help you make sure it’s packed with essential skills, fun trails and safe for all abilities. We can play a small role to help your students learn the basic skills and develop stability or we can plan and deliver an entire week-long super camp to challenge and up skill your students.
Participation Opportunities in Adelaide
We mean it when we say that Adelaide has the most accessible mountain biking trails in the world. We are spoiled with more than ten trail networks within 20 kilometers of the CBD, dedicated downhill, gravity enduro and cross country clubs, school competitions and rider development programs, not to mention the friendly and inclusive culture that surrounds it all.
