The first ever Mountain Bike Australia Adaptive Mountain Biking Camp in Australian History is hitting West Australia this September!

Event Overview

Enjoy 2 full days and nights in the West Australian bush for a relaxing and family-friendly camping and handcycling experience.

You'll be guided by a Mountain Bike Australia accredited coach with the support of experienced handcycle volunteers. You'll also have the opportunity to speak with a local manufacturer and check out some cutting-edge technology. Learn where to get equipment from and different grant/funding opportunities in WA!

It will be a cram-packed weekend, so throw on a helmet and get ready to tackle some Aussie dirt!
