Mini Dirtriders : New 2.5 hour course for young riders. Fun intro with an approx 6-7km ride. Lots of fun games which incorporate safety and begin to develop confidence and build skills.

Beginners :        Newer riders, more basic bike. Fun day out developing confidence and skills. Shorter Ride (Approx 20km) less challenging terrain, less climbing. Good for younger riders with less stamina.

Intermediates :  Confident, fitter riders using performance or dual suspension mountain bikes. Longer ride (Approx 25+km) more challenging terrain both up and down. Good for teenagers.
