Can you ride most of Manly Dam ... but feel you're lacking the skill or confidence to truly conquer it? Then our Demystifying the Dam clinic is for you. Or perhaps you've never ridden the Dam but want the opportunity to tackle rocky terrain in a supportive and fun environment, then you should definitely join us! We'll have you clearing the tricky bits and riding with greater confidence and control.

This workshop is also perfect for anyone who's completed our one-day skills clinic and is ready for the next challenge.

Course dates: 18 March, 24 June

Dam Busting

A series of four shorter sessions where we will take participants around Manly Dam, sessioning the hard bits and giving you tips and techniques to make your lap of Manly Dam more enjoyable and dare we say - a bit quicker! The 4 sessions will be held on Monday evenings on 26 Feb, 5, 12 & 19 March.
