Leadership, instruction, and support are by Georgina (George) Landy, an AusCycling MTB Development Instructor and Presenter, PMBIA Level 1 Instructor, Health & Life Coach, Outdoor Educator, and Wilderness First Aider. She is super passionate about building self-efficacy of women in the outdoors.

You need to bring:

  • food and water

Bike Hire plus a helmet is available for $50 for all program sessions. Let me know if you would like to do this.

Quotes from previous participants:

“I completed the Wellness on Wheels beginner MTB program and it provided exactly what I needed. I went in as a beginner to mountain biking but a skilled road cyclist. My goals were to feel confident on a mountain bike, improve my balance, and understand how to read the terrain. George taught us all of that and much more. Her knowledge and experience are invaluable and I highly recommend the course for anyone interested in mountain bike riding.”

“I really enjoyed this course. It gave me a good solid understanding of the essential technical MTB skills to get me out on the trails. The opportunity to practice these skills with George’s guidance & encouragement, along with other like minded women, was a thrill. I was able to push myself to do things which I may have otherwise talked myself out of… Thanks so much George, your love of MTBing & your passion to remind women of what they are capable of, is infectious.”

***Please note this program requires a minimum of 4 riders to go ahead.***
