Intro To Downhill (Half Day / Full Day)

RIDE HARD, RIDE SAFE


You may think mountain biking is some sort of exclusive club….? you`ve seen people on TV or out and about, “why are they wearing such colorful t-shirts?” you ask, then they disappear from the car park into the trees or up a mountain and come back covered in mud with a big smile on their face using words like “rad” and “stoked”… what do those words even mean!

Our intro to downhill will give you a great first time experience to help you answer the question “Do I want to take up Mountain Biking as a hobby?”

This workshop will spend time on flat terrain at the start, while the trainer introduces you to the core skills needed to get down the trail safely. Typically only 1 -2 rides on the downhill trail are completed during a half day workshop.
