Our Intro to Flow Tracks Session is a 3-hour session of lessons on a designated flow track with experienced, globally accredited mountain bike instructors who also have many years of experience in downhill racing. The session has very limited places in order to better facilitate participant experience and learning, as well as risk management. The Intro to Flow Track session will concentrate on the foundation skills required to safely and efficiently negotiate a flow track with more fun and speed in mind.
Our Intro to Flow Track Session is approx. 3 hours in length give or take.
This is a group session for people from 13 yrs old and up. Each group may contain up to approx. 10 riders maximum. Each session will have 2 coach/instructors.
More information will be emailed out a day or so before the session.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Our Intro to Flow Tracks Session is all about helping you to learn, develop and practice the skills to gain rhythm and be in sync with your bike and the trail's constantly changing features.
Skills learned will include:
- Body position
- Riding berms
- Line choice
- Trail awareness
- Bike handling for more speed
- Small jump/wheel lifts/tabletops
Note: Session and program content may be altered at the coaches discretion for reasons of safety, weather, to better cater for the riders or other requirements.
IS THIS FOR ME?
I’m an average intermediate cross country rider and want to try flow tracks but...
“I need to learn to handle speed better over lumps and dips.”
“I’m slow downhill.”
"I lose my nerve when the trail heads downhill"
"Tabletops make me cry"
"Berms make me cry too"
If any of these statements sound like you then perhaps our Intro to Flow Tracks Session is for you.
WHAT YOU NEED
Your mountain bike will need to be in good working order and can be suited to cross country through to gravity enduro. Tyre choice is yours, however, the bike must be fitted with mountain bike tyres also suited to off-road terrain. We suggest tyres at least 2.2in wide.
If you are unsure about any of this, please ask us.
We do ask that, to the best of your ability, that you try to ensure your bike is in good working and properly set up for your body shape and weight prior to the class. We cannot hold the class up to aid mechanical repairs.
If you have a full-face helmet by all means wear it. Standard cross country mountain bike helmets are acceptable. You are required to wear your helmet correctly fitted and it must be Australian approved helmet during all sessions.
Dropper Post (optional)
Although not compulsory, having a dropper post on your bike is an advantage on a flow track. If you don't have a dropper post, you may wish to lower your seatpost to gain more freedom of movement over the bike and lessen any chance of your seat causing you issues during your session. You can talk to our instructors prior to the class beginning about this if you need.
Knee and Elbow Pads (optional)
We recommend all students wear extra protection in the form of hard or soft shell pads on both knees and elbows, however, it is optional. By wearing elbow and knee pads, you not only gain the protection but also the confidence that comes from knowing you have the protection.
