Corona-virus (CORVID-19) & Momentum Is Your Friend
In response to the current Coronavirus crisis we are only running private XC sessions. We are not running any of our group sessions.
With friends and associates in the medical profession, we are assured that our private xc sessions are safe to continue.
We are watching the government directives and making sure we comply with those as they are released. We are also governed by NSW Forestry and National Parks and Wildlife, both of whom we have permits to operate in their forests and reserves etc so we are complying with their directives as well.
We will be enforcing strict Social Distancing beyond the current advised distance at all times during our private xc sessions.
If you book a private session with us be ready to observe and follow the precautions below:
- Keep space between yourself and others - our coaches and students at each session are to keep the current government and health advised minimum distances from other people at all times,
- Don’t shake hands or hug anybody,
- Avoid touching anything that is not yours including water bottles, bikes, bike gear or bike tools etc,
- Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or a flexed elbow, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible.
- If a student/participant shows up with signs of sickness we are required to turn them back home and ask them to call their doctor. As our skills instructor(s) have been engaged for the day's booking, no refund can be given.
Triple Student 2 Hr Private Session
Our triple student sessions focus on what the students want or need to learn. Students often find that having a few friends along, not only reduces the cost per head, but also adds to the enjoyment while learning.
2 Hour Triple = $100 ea ($50 p/h)
REFUND: A refund will be credited to the card of which the session(s) were purchased after 30 days of the purchase date if the person, for which the session(s) were purchased, has not contacted us to make a booking date.
- 2 hour private session of professional skills training for 3 persons
- Your choice of location* from our available locations (listed below)
- Your choice of beginner and/or intermediate skill(s) to be taught
NOTE: Although your mountain bike can be entry level, it is required that your bike is fitted with mountain bike tyres and not touring/semi-slick tyres. If you are unsure, please ask us.
What will I learn?
We can teach you anything from how to check your bike for problems through to learning to jump.
Common skills we are asked to teach include the following:
- Advanced cornering quickly on flat turns and berms
- Basic cornering
- Dealing with rocks
- Wheel lifting & manuals
- Bike handling for more speed
- Climbing & descending steep, pinches and switchbacks
- Small jump/hopping
- Race skills
- Location specific manoeuvres
- Correct positioning on the bike
- Choosing the best lines
- Correct gear changing
- Correct braking
- Getting over small obstacles
- and more.
*For both safety and maximum cost benefit to the customer, the students will all need to learn same skills together.
Is this session for me?
"I'm shy so I prefer to learn in a group of people I know."
“I have a mountain bike but I’m scared to ride it on mountain bike trails.”
“I would just like to learn properly.”
“I have not mountain biked in a long time and need to brush up on my skills.”
“I can ride ok but struggle to get over logs or down hills.”
“I would just like to learn how to hop over obstacles properly.”
“Can't work out how to take corners faster.”
“I already ride well but I’m not really getting better.”
“My riding friends are all better than I am.”
“I can ride ok but struggle when trails point down over rocks.”
If any of these statements sound like you then perhaps this session is for you.
