More Info

Our School Holiday Programs begin with a basic skills coaching session to teach participants the fundamental skills of mountain biking. We cover body position & moving on the bike, braking technique, gear selection as well as 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 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 four hour adventure with us.
