Groups for Women

Head for the Hills offers mountain bike skills coaching and training just for women in Adelaide. There are three courses available, each designed for a specific level of ability. These are:

The lessons within each course are designed to progressively build confidence and competence on the bike. More information on the contents of each course can be found below.

We run each course twice per year in the warmer months, subject to demand. If booking is unavailable below, you can add your name to the mailing list and we will keep you updated on future programs.
