Our vision

"Mountains, oceans and off-road terrain are not boundaries!"

What we do

Break The Boundary advocates for accessibility and inclusion of people with physical and neurological disabilities in Mountain Biking (recreational and sports) and acts as a central hub for people seeking information about Adaptive Mountain Biking around Australia. We also run annual camps, clinics and riding groups and manage guidelines to help give others direction.

Break the Boundary was founded in 2012 and is not-for-profit, strictly volunteer based and is not affiliated with any businesses. We don't get paychecks because our joy of helping others is payment enough! Meet the team.

Mission

To empower people with physical disabilities to go beyond flat surfaces, out of their comfort zone, and into off-road areas around Australia which they thought were inaccessible.

Ethos

With the right tools on the right terrain and with the right attitude, anyone can experience the thrills and joy of being off-road in Australia.
