Adaptive MTB Adventure Camp 2018 – Lowden, West Australia

Adaptive mountain bike camp 4 WA flyer

The 4th MTBA Adaptive Mountain Biking Camp in Australian is hitting West Australia this September!

Enjoy 3 days and 2 nights in the West Australian bush for a relaxing, fully catered and family-friendly camping and handcycling experience.
Learn the basics of different equipment, try them yourself, learn how to tackle different trail features and slowly build up your confidence.
Learn where to get equipment from and different grant/funding opportunities in WA!
You'll be guided by two Mountain Bike Australia accredited coaches with the support of experienced handcycle volunteers.
Past participants had so much fun that they want to come back a second time! So we've introduced a second coach to take out the more experienced riders through more rugged trails.
It will be a cram-packed weekend, so throw on a helmet and get ready to tackle some Aussie dirt!

Everyone is welcome but the focus will be for people with physical or neurological disabilities that require adaptive cycles to participate in mountain biking and assistance with camping.
