Can you really come to Hanmer and not go out on a bike? Hanmer Springs is the most awesome venue for mountain biking. Our base at the Forest Camp is the ideal starting point for this great school camp activity.
There is an awesome range of tracks for all abilities in the Hanmer Springs Forest. Activity Hanmer instructors know the Forest very well and whatever the group they will give you a great time. Our fleet of top quality mountain bikes are based at the Forest camp which is a great place to start the ride as there is lots of space to get used to your bike and we can make a quick assessment of ability levels and then straight into the Forest – Yee ha.
Our standard introductory ride normally last for 2.5 hrs. The instructors pride themselves on making the students better riders and look to improve their skills and knowledge focusing on brakes, gears, body position, negotiating obstacles and perhaps small jumps and puddles!!
With older students we offer intermediate level rides – Blue Runs. We can look at maintenance, fitness and racing as well as giving them a memorable experience.
Advanced Mountain Bike Rides
With Yr 12/13 students who are perhaps specializing in PE we can look at working with them on a 2 day course culminating in a timed event over a specific course.
This was tried out with Rangiora High School students this year and went extremely well and crucially was a piece of course assessment linked to achievement standards.
Price by arrangement.
