Mountain Biking Camp

INFO: Overnight Program. 4 days/3 Nights. Monday – Thursday. Grades 8 – 12. Male and Female. Extra Cost: $200. 

Mountain Biking Camp will again be held at the The Steps Mountain Bike Park which is a part of the Barrington Outdoor Education Centre. The park includes a cross country loop with multiple challenges and a skills area for practicing body position, balance, gearing, braking, cornering and riding obstacles.

The highly experienced and qualified instructors will guide the students (and staff) through varying degrees of difficulty activities and tracks, each building the confidence of the riders as they progress.

The Cross Country Loop is 3.5 kilometres of single track suitable for riders of all skill levels. The loop rewards riders with flowing downhill sections, technical climbs and log bridges set amidst a scenic riverside location on the Barrington River. Additional features of the bike park include a Pump Track for a full-body biking workout plus The Playground, a dedicated mountain biking obstacle course with options to suit specific skill levels of riders.  The mountain biking experience at The Steps offers fun and challenges for all skill levels.

Students will spend the first day setting up their base camp, getting to know their equipment and skills training on The Steps purpose built mountain bike track and pump track.

The second day the group will travel to a nearby mountain bike area where students will be split into two groups based on their abilities. Here they will develop cross country and all mountain skills before returning to The Steps.

The third and fourth days are spent in varied groups and will tackle another range of tracks in the nearby area. This may include the single track and north shore features of Kiwarrak State Forest and some fun downhill runs in the Copeland Area.

Students will be introduced to bike maintenance throughout the program and in the evenings. They will develop skills in four different mountain biking disciplines in four different areas. This program will accommodate intermediate to advanced riders. What a great way to spend a week, exploring new areas, developing new skills and making new friends.

The program is subject to change depending on weather.

Please note that this program is a customised program for NBCS, and while the school contributes the majority of funds towards it, due to the expensive nature of this particular program and the distance to travel, a $200 surcharge is necessary.
