You will learn the basics of riding a bicycle (MtB) on easy off-road trails, including bike handling on up-slopes and down-slopes, use of gears, and braking techniques.
Experienced instructors will give a half hour presentation about Mountain-biking, biking techniques, and safety. Followed by a practice ride around the Kampong Trails and other interesting trails, ending back at the Assembly Area.
This year, the Mountain Bike Association is opening Pre-registration for 50 participants. Registration details below.
Open to participants (male and female) aged 15 - 50 years old. Participants must be able to ride a bicycle confidently on tarmac roads, in order to learn how to handle a bike off-road.
