Mountain Biking Courses
Introduction to MTB
Bali Rides provides a 2-day skills training for groups or individuals who can ride a bike but want to start mountain biking (MTB) and want to learn basic mountain biking techniques. The first day of this 2-day course focusses on technique. We get to know our bikes, how the parts function, basic maintenance, the techniques for riding a MTB, how to overcome particular problems common to MTB riding, and practical theory on how to handle different terrain. The first day is done in the scenic Mount Batur area.
On the second day we put the training into practice by doing a day ride. In most instances the day ride will be Mt. Abang to Telaga Waja River.
