MOUNTAIN BIKE Fundamentals

Getting comfortable riding trails around town, but new to bike park riding? This course is great for those new to mountain biking or those that have not been riding in a while. Our instructors will introduce you to the fundamentals of body position, braking, cornering, lift riding and trail selection to set you up for a fun day on the mountain. 

flow (berms and turns)

Beginner / intermediate

Let’s get our flow on! This course is great for those that have been mountain biking for a while and want to explore the ins and outs of cornering to help you ride smoother. We’ll review the fundamentals then put them to practice on our flow trails.

Rocks and drops

Intermediate / advanced

Ready to take your riding to the next level? This course helps you tackle the rocks and drops in steep terrain. We’ll review the fundamentals then head into the steeper terrain of our technical trails.

fly (pumping and jumping)

Intermediate / advanced

Let’s get some air! We’ll review the fundamentals then hop right into pumping and progress into getting wheels off the ground with style.

We also offer a trail guide option for intermediate and above riders who haven't been to Cardrona before. This 1-hour session is more about a mountain orientation; getting the inside scoop on trail conditions and getting to know entries, exits and spots to watch out for around NZ's highest bike park.
