ENJOY

Each session challenges riders within their personal limits in a fun and engaging way.

School holiday program for riders 8 years and up (beginner and intermediate level). 

Grab your bike!  

The program caters for beginners to intermediate level riders. Sessions are 3.5hr in duration, priced at $55 per session and held at both Clarence MTB Park (Mornington) and Glenorchy MTB Park (Tolosa Park).

From mastering the basics to riding challenging trails with confidence and flow, the program focuses on developing solid foundations for young riders.  

Each session is a blend of riding games, challenges, and group trail rides. Not only do we hit some of Tassie’s best trails for some insane riding, but we also create an environment where kids celebrate small and big wins together and support their riding mates when it’s needed the most.

Come along and hit the trails with the MTB crew! 


We believe in the transformative power of riding bikes, learning, and having fun outdoors.

Parents need to remain contactable throughout the program. You may be required to collect your child: - If their bike fails and can’t be quickly fixed - If they fall off and are not able to continue - if they are not behaving or will not listen to the coaches - if they aren't comfortable riding their bike on the designated trails - or, if they don't want to participate If the program does not reach the minimum numbers within 1 week, the program may be cancelled and all participants will be refunded (or credited by request).
