I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.
Fun and fitness for young females
Calling females aged between 12 to 18 to register for a FREE 'Come and try' mountain-biking session in June and July. The Canberra Off-Road Cyclists (CORC) are running free mountain bike sessions for girls and young women. All you need is a working mountain bike, helmet and be a confident bike rider. You don't need to have mountain bike riding experience.
Fitness and fun
Canberra has great trails and is a good place for mountain-biking. Mountain biking is a good way to stay fit and meet people while enjoying the great outdoors, especially the Stromlo Forest Park.
Only 15% of the ACT Schools Mountain Bike Championships, which is held in August, is female. CORC's volunteers with a grant from Women's Sport and Recreation Participation and Leadership Grant from the ACT Government enables this free 'Come and try' mountain-biking sessions.
If you are still unsure or not a great bike rider, please contact CORC as they might be able to offer additional assistance and help you get into bike riding.
The sessions are run by experienced coaches which will make the session fun and inclusive. To join in and learn more about mountain biking, select from one of these sessions: Saturday 5 June 2pm Sunday 20 June 10am Sunday 18 July 10am
For insurance purposes, you will also need to register for the free 4-week Aus Cycling membership.
