Manly: Mountain Biking Fundamentals

Manly Dam: Mountain Biking Fundamentals // $110

This MTB Fundamentals skills clinic at Manly Dam is suitable for riders with some off-road riding experience and those who may have more experience but want to progress their riding by revisiting the fundamental skills and techniques.

Through detailed instruction and demonstrations, followed by supervised drills tailored to different rider levels, this clinic will equip you with the knowledge and practical experience that will enable you to ride with more confidence and further develop your skills.  

Fiona Dick & Joe Ward from Chocolate Foot are your instructors for the skills clinic. They are committed to ensuring you have a productive, fun day on the bike and are happy to answer any questions you may have!



8.30am - 12.30pm


This will likely be Manly Dam but we will confirm closer to the time


  • Bike safety & setup - ensuring your bike is mechanically sound, comfortable, and suitably set up for your riding style

  • Body position and weight distribution - understanding the effect of your body position on the bike

  • Balance skills - for control at low speed and in the tight stuff

  • Braking - which brake does what and how to brake for best effect

  • Cornering and single track technique - learn to rail your favourite single track!

  • Ascending & descending - body position, gear selection, line choice

  • Riding over obstacles


  • Mountain bike - please make sure your bike is mechanically sound and clean (hire available – see below)

  • Bike gear – helmet (Australian Standards AS/NZS 2063 approved), gloves, shoes, sunnies

  • Spares & tools - tube, chain link, multi-tool, pump

  • Water & snacks – enough to get you through the session


If you don’t have a suitable bike for the clinic, we can arrange hire of a Norco Sight dual suspension bike for you for $75.00, which includes helmet and delivery/pick up of the bike.


In the event of bad weather, we will aim to re-organise the event, if you're unable to make the new date it we will offer you a full refund.

No refund on tickets on cancelations 7 days out from the event.

No Show: If you fail to show up on the day of your activity or course, you forfeit your full course fee.

And that's it!

We started She Went Wild with the aim to empower and enable women to gain their footing in the outdoors and kickstart a lifetime of adventure. We hope to see you on this workshop!
