This mountain biking course in the Adelaide Hills is specifically designed for the weekend rider who is looking to improve their general skills. It focuses on improving your current abilities, teaches you better ways to approach your bike riding, and learning the basics correctly.
Main Skills Covered
Main Description Do you want to learn to ride smoother, faster, and with more confidence? What about learning to tackle more technical terrain or harder obstacles. Well, we can show you, by going ‘back to basics’! We will focus on some of the most important skills you can ever learn. This begins with us briefly covering bike set-up and your body position and stance on your bike, so you are totally comfortable on your bike before we start getting too technical! We cover techniques such as track stands, manuals and wheel lifts, and we will also go riding to attempt these skills ‘on the trail’. You may be surprised what bad habits you had picked up, or how much your riding improves by going back to basics! Our skills training is suitable for most riders, from the brand new rider just getting out on a mountain bike for the first time, through to the more confident, advanced rider who wants to hone their skills and look at improving their riding ability.
