If, like us, you’ve been glued to the Cricket World Cup you’ll know that New Zealand’s generated plenty of excitement on the cricket pitch over the last few weeks. But there’s been thrills and spills of an off-road kind going on as well – the Crankworx World Tour recently stopped off in Rotorua for the first time ever, the town hosted the New Zealand Mountain Bike Championships and the 20th anniversary of the Rainbow Rage took place down south.
New Zealand is well and truly on the map as a great mountain bike destination, with popular spots including Rotorua, the Ruapehu region, Woodhill Forest in Auckland and Queenstown.
If you fancy giving mountain biking a go but you’re not sure your riding skills are up to the challenge, we offer mountain bike skills training in Christchurch and Auckland. Here’s what’s involved:
What and where:
A half-day of mountain bike skills training on local hills in either Christchurch or Auckland.
We’ll start by assessing your current level. From there, we’ll give you feedback and tips to help you develop your skills and boost your confidence. We might work on nailing the basics: braking, use of gears and uphill/downhill riding position or we might focus on more specific areas: riding the rough, negotiating switchbacks or mastering hops and drops.
Our experienced instructors can teach any level required, from complete beginners through to advanced riders looking to sharpen their skills. Come by yourself or bring a buddy. We can also cater for larger groups.
From $125. For more info, or to book a session, drop us an email.
