Dear All

After a pretty cold and wet August, we hope you're enjoying as much as we are the spectacular start to Spring. So what a great time to launch the next set of skills clinic dates. We're excited to have changed up the format of our clinics slightly, plus we've responded to popular demand by adding a clinic for kids! Read on below.

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: 20 October, 8 December

MTB Fundamentals

This is our most popular clinic and it’s aimed at riders who want to learn the fundamental skills of mountain biking, and also those who are looking to improve their technical riding skills, confidence in rough terrain, and ultimately their enjoyment of riding! With a low student to teacher ratio, we ensure plenty of attention and instruction for everyone. The skills and drills we’ll teach will be tailored to ensure everyone gets the most out of the session.

Course dates: 29 September, 16 November

MTB Fundamentals for Women

Course dates: 28 September, 30 November 

MTB Fundamentals for Kids

Kids love learning new skills as well as getting outside and being physical, which is why mountain biking has proven to be so popular with kids!

Kids website

Our kids clinic is designed to be fun and educational for 9-13 year old children who can already ride, pedal and have basic control of a bike. The aim of the clinic is to teach the correct skills for cornering, braking, descending and climbing by teaching body positioning, braking technique, gear selection and pedalling technique.

Course dates: 17 November

One-on-One / Small Group Tuition

We also offer private or small group tuition, so if you can't make a group clinic or want private coaching, get in touch! These can be scheduled for any day of the week, and can be held at St Ives Showground or Manly Dam. We are also happy to travel to a location of your choice if the landowner permits it.

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.

That's it for now! We look forward to seeing you out on the trails soon!
