Beginners Mountain Bike Skills Course

Beginners Mountain Bike Skills Course

Develop a rock solid base skill set for mountain biking.

Are you just getting started with mountain biking? Maybe it’s been awhile since you last threw a leg over a bike? My beginner’s course is designed for you.

The aim of this course is to give you the base skills and confidence to start mountain biking.

What to expect

The Mission beginners course is held at Dalby Forest. I’ll help you to set up your bike and ride the forest trails. The emphasis is on enjoyment and fun. By the end of the day you’ll have gained the skills and confidence to tackle a red route. You’ll have a solid foundation on which to build, and avoid developing any bad habits.

What you'll learn

Develop an understanding of mountain biking, the different disciplines, types of bike & their key differences.

Learn how to setup your bike and how to do a quick pre-ride check before every ride.

Get started with the core skills of braking, cornering, ascending and descending, in relaxed confidence.

Discover what kit you’ll need to be an effective mountain biker, and what you should pack for each and every ride.

A functional bike. A good set of brakes is a must. If you have any questions about bike suitability, give me a call or message me below.

Protection: A helmet is mandatory. I recommend a pair of gloves. Eye protection can be useful too.

Enough water/fluid to last the day. A packed lunch and maybe a few snacks to keep you going.
