Family Foundations Coaching Sessions

Two young kids ride their mountain bikes down a track

Experience the thrill of riding off-road with the whole family

If you are looking for a family activity for the school holidays or would like to try out the sport of mountain biking before committing to buying a fleet of bikes for the whole family, why not book your family in for a private foundations session?

Our highly experienced coaches will get you started learning the basics of riding off-road, get you moving safely and confidently off-road, before taking you on a short ride down some tricky trails to put your new skills to the test.

I had no idea we could all learn so much so quickly. An incredible sport that we can all take part in as a family
