Curious to see what all the hype is about?

Come join a group and learn some of the foundational skills of mountain biking, before going on a beginner trails ride. As part of the group, you will have the opportunity to meet others who are also making their first tracks off-road and learn together.

Within this 2 hour group session we’ll provide you with a hardtail bike & helmet, and gradually introduce you to the world of mountain biking on some of the North Shore's beginner green trails.

Our Try MTB sessions are all about getting first time riders excited about mountain biking and ready for to take on more with the foundational skills!

The perfect way to try out mountain biking before investing in Private Lessons or our Progression Session Level 1 course.

Who will I be riding with?
