Skills Development

Returning this season...

Our next set of sessions get underway on Thursday 19th of October at Paneiri Park, Palmerston North.

We've still got Under 13 groups starting at 5pm with 13 years and over/Adult groups kicking off at 6pm.

There have been a few changes to this season's programme and we strongly suggest that you have a read through all the changes on the Skills Development website along with the groups being offered this time around (see the link below).

Please note: As the groups this season are being limited, preference is being given to paid-up Club members. But you are still welcome to let us know you're interested!

The Manawatu Mountain Bike Club has a strong focus on developing mountain bikers. We provide a number of opportunities for riders to have a go at mountain biking as well as a programme for developing riding and/or racing skills for all ages. We also have a program for coaches trained to BikeNZ/Cycling NZ standards.

The Manawatu Mountain Bike Club has been committed to rider training and skills development for over 10 years,
Started by Colin and Raewyn Knight to meet the needs of our young riders, Skills development has grown into a well organised fun programme for riders of any age or skill.

We have a dedicated team of passionate coaches and helpers, many of which are working towards BikeNZ coaching qualifications, who would love to mould your riding into something truly awesome.

Whether you are starting out and want direction on even the most basic of skills or, have been riding for years but feel you still lack some skills or, just love riding and getting out on your bike, Skills development is the place for you. Come along, we would love to see you grow in confidence and ability.
We always need help! If you are a competent Mountain Biker who loves teaching others the sport you love and have a couple of hours a week spare, then please get in touch.  Also, if you are a non-rider but are keen to help out we have a spot available to assist with the registration side of things.

We'd love your help, so please contact Colin Knight caileancrk@gmail.com

MEETING PLACE :  End of Maxwells Line, beside Paneiri Park.
