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 who are MtB Instructors accredited 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.
