Event description
Ride Better with CORC on this six week skills development program. Build your skills and confidence with other like minded mountain bikers!

About this Event

Cost: $230

Starting: October 29 2019

What: 6 week course for adult mountain bikers. Sessions will be 1.5 hours

Who for: This program is only available to adults aged 18 and over

Session times: Tuesdays from 6-730pm

Difficulty level: First timers to Strong-Intermediate

You will be grouped by your responses on the registration questionnaire and after completing their initial assessments during the first session our coaches will then group riders by ability. Courses will then be tailored to those in each group and the areas of interest identified.

Courses will be held concurrently, so participants may be able to move across groups if necessary.

Where: Mount Stromlo.

Ratio: 1 coach to 5 participants.

Conditions

Participants MUST be able to attend the first 2 sessions of the course

Coaches will offer make up sessions if sessions are cancelled due to weather.

It will be at the discretion of each coach whether to offer a make up session due to illness/injury.

Mountain Biking Australia Licence

All participants will need to have a valid MTBA licence. Participants may register for a free 8 week trial membership prior to the course commencing (free trial membership only open to those who have not held MTBA membership previously).

Cancellation policy

Participants will be reimbursed the full fee up to 7 days prior to the course. Cancellations within 7 days may receive reimbursement, if possible at the discretion of the organisers.

Course participants

Due to limited availability of coaches for this session, groups will most likely be mixed gender however we will seek to offer a gender specific group should there be the demand for it.
