GippSport in partnership with Mount Baw Baw Alpine Resort is pleased to make available this introductory mountain bike program to provide an opportunity for women with limited or no mountain biking experience to try the fun and social sport of mountain biking.
The program is aimed at women wanting to learn mountain biking, for women new to the trails, and for women wanting to try a new way to exercise and enjoy the outdoors. The program will be run in a safe and supporting environment by highly qualified and experienced coaches and is subsidised to keep the costs to a minimum.
The program comprises of a MTB guide offering basic skill guidance and tours for women only as well as a MTB shuttle from 11am – 3pm, with or without your own bike. Bike loan can also be arranged.

The program starts at the very basics of riding a bike and is primarily held on a flat grassy area.
