Introduction to Off-Road Riding with Ben and Melissa May
The month of April marked the first of Bicycle Riders Mountain Biking and Off-Road rides, led by competitive cyclists and athletes, Ben and Melissa May.
The first ride had a small turnout, providing a great opportunity to test out the carefully planned track, designed for those new to mountain biking, or looking to learn some important skills and techniques for safe off-roading. Owner of Bicycle Riders Chris took the opportunity to brush up on some off-road skills, and was impressed with Ben’s ability to lead at a comfortable pace. After a short time Chris said any nerves were at ease and his confidence developed throughout the hour and a half ride.
Bicycle Riders Mountain Bike treks are all scheduled at Daisy Hill, which is just a short, twenty minute drive from the CBD.
Our next off-road adventure is scheduled for Sunday the 1st of May, we hope to see you there!
