Adaptive Mountain Biking Camp – May 2021

By March 19, 2021 July 21st, 2021 No Comments

Join us for 3 days of adaptive mountain biking across some of Greater Sydney’s top MTB trails, including Manly Dam, Awaba MTB Park and Green Valley’s MTB Park.  

This course has been designed for people who own their own adaptive mountain bikes that would like to be supported to ride mountain bike trails. If you own a Sport-on Jeetrike, XCR or Explorer then this is the week for you! We’ll also have Tune Cycles on hand to ensure you’re whip is running smoothly, and able to sort out any running repairs as needed. (Note: any repairs will be at the expense of the rider)

Don’t own your own bike? Don’t worry, we’ve got the crew from Adaptive Concepts Australia coming along for the week with a range of their cycles including a quad adapted Jeetrike and Explorer.

Please note: For those who are bringing their own bike, it is expected that you will have all your own protective gear including MTB Helmet that meets Australian Standards.

For those using one of our cycles we will provide you with all your protective equipment.
