Mountain Bike Course in Bali for Beginners

Image
So you want to learn how to start mountain biking and take your riding to the next step? Awesome! We totally support that decision! Mountain biking is our favorite thing in the world. You’ll get to explore amazing and beautiful places, have a blast on the trails with friends, gain confidence on and off your bike, get fit and strong, and so much more.

As someone just starting out, it can all feel a little overwhelming. But don’t let those uncertainties hold you back. Just like any sport, there is a learning curve – and sometimes it’s steep, but once you commit to learning and stepping outside of your comfort zone, that’s when the fun really begins.

We have put together this amazing day where we will explain everything you need to know about how to start mountain biking, including setting up your bike, basic repairs, and riding techniques. And of course, we'll practice all these new skills on a beginner-friendly trail!

Depending on the level of the group and where you are staying in Bali, we can either run this course in the Tabanan countryside, close to Canggu or just above Ubud in the rice paddy fields area's.
