The club has a long history of providing a Dirtmasters program aimed at imparting some basic riding skills and encouragement to youth aged 6 – 18. Before the bushfires of 2019, it took the form of a monthly structured social ride out at our New Italy trails.
Until we have these trails up and running again, Dirtmasters will continue to take place on the first Sunday of the month at Emmanuel Anglican College in Ballina. The focus, under the guidance of a Level 1 MTBA Skills Instructor, is to teach the students the basic building blocks of riding skills. These sessions are suitable for new riders as well as experienced riders who could benefit from sharpening up some of their skills.
Skills sessions run in two categories: Under 11 (6 – 10); and Under 19 (11 – 18).
These events are advertised on our Facebook pages, in the Club Events Calendar, and if you are a member, via email notification.
