Mountain Biking at Kellevie

MTB2

Several weeks ago, the TasTAFE Certificate III in Outdoor Recreation students were treated to three consecutive days of Mountain Biking, combined with camping at Kellevie in South Eastern Tasmania.

This was their final mountain biking experience to hone and polish the skills they had learnt in previous weeks.

Students spent the week riding technical fire roads and cross-country style single-track.  From here, they practiced changing their weight distribution, cornering in tight switchbacks, keeping an optimal cadence, and learnt how to tackle some daunting trail obstacles such as drops, small jumps, and chutes.

It was encouraging to see many students progressing in their confidence and skill levels, all thanks to the guidance and constant support of our mountain bike guide Gemma Gooley, and our teacher Renee Harrington. Thank you for your patience and for providing a great week away!
