Bike Club will start from Week 2 of Term 1

Welcome to Bike Club - we progress together!


From the first Penny Farthing to the 2020 enduros - biking's always been more fun with friends! All of our Bike Club courses are focused on groups progressing together, learning whilst laughing and getting out on to the trails. 

We'll be offering rides from for intermediate and advanced so, no matter your skill level, there's something for everyone. Similarly, we'll also be shuttling from  Take Karara, Hawea Flat and Holy Family so no one in town misses out. 

If this wasn't enough, we'll regularly be going further afield on weekends and testing our skills on fun day excursions. 

Intermediate sessions


Wednesday 3:00pm to 5:45pm


Catered for shredders aged 7+ that are used to the basics of flat pedals and handling a little bit of speed.

We take these groups on more technical routes to the beginners and build on their skills by teaching them the techniques required to level up quickly. 

Our coaches will assess each child's capabilities and tailor their approach to get maximum results. 

Advanced sessions


Thursday 3:00pm to 6pm


Our advanced shredders typically start ages 11+ but exceptions have been made after assessing performance in the intermediate sessions - if you shred, you shred!

These rides are more free flowing, allowing the bikers to have increased control and input on things they feel they'd like to improve about their riding whilst still getting tips from the coaches on how to skill up.

Weekend adventures



Load up and join us on regular Friday trips to tackle the slopes at Cardrona Bike Park. Running for 5 weeks from Friday 28th Feb to end of March.

Saturdays / Sundays

Also running for 6 weeks will be our Family Funduro. There'll be limited spaces on these epic days where we'll spend one Saturday teaching kids and parents to bike the trail with the following Saturday dedicated to a Funduro where kids and parents ride the track together under timed conditions - more info to follow soon. 

Kids $20 and parents come free. 

Sat 29th Feb / 7th March - Hikuwai

Sat 14th March / 21st - Deans Bank

Sat 28th March / 4th April - Sticky Forest

What to bring


A Mountain Bike


Please bring a recently serviced bike in good working order - we'll have tools for minor repairs and punctures. Should a bike be assessed as unworthy or a safety hazard, we'll unfortunately have to leave both the biker and bike enjoying the normal after-school session at Kids Club. 

Water bottle + riding bag if needed

Water bottles will need to be attached to the bike or carried in a small riding bag or camel pack. 

Safety gear

At the very least, a helmet and toed shows are required. We recommend gloves as well.
