Head for the Hills

School Holiday Mountain Biking Adventure

The program begins with a basic skills coaching session to teach participants the fundamental skills of mountain biking including body position and moving on the bike, braking technique, gear selection as well as other handy tips to help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Once everybody is comfortable and settled on the bikes, the adventure begins. A series of geocaches containing cleverly constructed cryptic clues are hidden all over the Craigburn Farm trail network. Participants work as a team using good old maps (not google-maps!) to find and decipher each clue, which hints to the next geocache’s secret location and the best trail to get there. Participants will cover over 12 kilometres of trail and climb around 300 vertical meters during their adventure. After all the geocaches have been found (approximately 4 hours in the park), riders will travel to the Blackwood Community Centre for some well-deserved rest as well as a bike maintenance workshop and more mountain biking activities.

Fun activities include:
• Skills Coaching with Tyson Schmidt (2017 & 2018 Australian Downhill World Championships Team Manager)
• Introductory trail ride
• Geocache Hunt by Bike
• Bike Maintenance Course
• Bike & Helmet Included

Tuesday 9, Thursday 11, Tuesday 16 & Thursday 18 July 2019 (more dates may be added) | 9am-5pm | Drop-off at 9am on Craigburn Rd, Blackwood (map) | Pickup at 5pm at Blackwood Community Centre , 4 Young St Blackwood (map) | Ages 11 – 14 years
