Dear All

Happy New Year! Hope 2019 is off to a great start with plenty of rides already under the belt. We enjoyed the festive season in the beautiful NSW Snowy Mountains with a rigorous daily schedule of ride, eat, siesta, swim. Very satisfactory! We hope you had a fantastic break too.

Demystifying the Dam

IMG 0616Can 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: 17 March, 5 May, 30 June

MTB Skills

This skills clinic at Manly Dam is suitable for beginner (with some off road experience) and intermediate riders who want to improve their technical riding ability. You will have a reasonable amount of riding experience and a good level of fitness. With two instructors and a small group of participants, we can ensure plenty of attention for each person. The drills you'll learn and practice will be tailored to ensure everyone gets the most out of the day.

Course dates: 3 February, 31 March, 26 May

We have good availability, 7 days of the week - so the options are many! Check out the info at the link below, and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you want to explore this option.
