Here are a few different ways to get involved while you are visiting our area.....

The Burrup Mountain Bike Club offers bike hire to visitors wishing to try it out, and they also offer "Dirtmasters – Mountain Biking Skills for Kids (3-12)" These are practical sessions that teach kids of all ages and abilities the skills that make mountain biking so much fun. Sessions are presented by coaches who have achieved a minimum Level 0 MTBA coaching level. Once the basics are mastered we progress to conquering obstacles, lifting front and back wheels, bunny hopping and more! These sessions are held approximately once a month, generally occuring on Sunday Mornings at 0900 and run for between 60-90min. If you don’t have a mountain bike? That’s ok – any bike will do. What you need to bring is: a bike, helmet, water bottle and a parent.  Your will also need to be a MTBA member prior to the session ($50 for 12 months including Burrup MTB Club membership or a two month free trial is available). More details about the Club can be found here.
