All of Bike On’s Mountain Bike Coaching programs are about having fun in a low pressure, supportive and inclusive environment. We aim to develop a life long passion for the joy and excitement of mountain biking by allowing kids to have fun, ride with mates and take their riding to the next level in a progressive manner. All under the supervision of PMBIA qualified coaches.
Our Senders Squad programs are designed for kids who are starting out on their MTB Journey through to those that have mastered the basics of MTB riding and want to continue to progress to more challenging terrain and continue to refine and develop their skills at a more intermediate level.
Saturday – Term Only 1, 2024 – Beginner to Intermediate – Ages 5-14

Our Senders Squad programs run with multiple coaches at each session and are designed for kids who are starting out on their MTB journey all the way through to to advanced riders who want to continue to refine and develop their skills under the supervision of PMBIA qualified coaches.
This is NOT a subscription program. It is for a single term only, paid up front in full. It does not include inclusions found in our subscription programs such as monthly payment, heavily discounted access to after school programs, included access to school holiday programs, free Bike On jerseys, discounted bike servicing and free Ad Hoc adults coaching lessons. If you are planing on enrolling your child with Bike On on a continuing basis, accessing holiday programs or after school programs we strongly suggest looking at our various subscription options
While there is not a specific age requirement, this program will typically appeal to riders aged 5-14 years of age but other ages are certainly welcomed. Please contact us to discuss prior to booking.
This is a Beginner – Upper Intermediate Program but all riders must at least be capable of:
The bike must be of a standard that doesn’t represent an unreasonable safety risk when riding on mountain bike trails. A suitable bike will have:
The following protective equipment is compulsory for this program:
We would also strongly recommend the following protective equipment:
While bikes do not have to be super high end, they must be well maintained and in good working order. All programs come with free bike safety checks, conducted by Bike On which also includes free basic adjustments (excludes parts and labour costs to fit). We would strongly encourage parents to take advantage of this offer.
In the interest of transparency and to avoid disappointment we’d like to make it clear that all term programs are priced on the assumption that 7 out of 10 weeks will run, however we will run all 10 weeks of term at no additional charges if conditions allow (essentially providing up to 3 free sessions per term and some degree of flexibility for students that skip weeks for various reasons). In normal circumstances, participants will get more than the 7 weeks, in very rare circumstances they may not. In order to ensure space for your child, a booking reserves the space for each week of the term. Low weekly costs are achieved by selling spaces as a term long program and are not possible by selling weekly spots on a casual basis. As with most term or season long group sports, they are not costed to include credits, refunds or alternative classes for weeks missed for any reason.
If you envisage missing the majority of weeks, you may wish to pay the week-by-week casual fee of $75 however this is strictly subject to availability on the week in the group that is suitable for your child. No guarantee of availability of casual spots on any given week are given and availability changes over the term.
In the event of inclement weather (heavy rain, storms etc) we may look to postpone, modify or cancel the session but will attempt to deliver the majority of classes. As a result, we do ride in the rain with due consideration to safety. We will make every effort to deliver all sessions in any given period, but the program pricing assumes that events beyond our control may result in some programs not running. Bike On strictly adhere to capacity numbers for all programs and cannot typically accommodate missed or cancelled sessions by moving kids around between different programs week to week.
Bike On staff participate in significant trail maintenance, especially at Gympie and Wooroi and we also pay land mangers between $2-$3 per rider per session (however unfortunately land managers don’t often use this for trail maintenance).
If you would like to contribute to the maintenance of the trails, there will be the option to add a small, completely voluntary one-off or ongoing contribution to your booking that will either be donated directly to local bike clubs or used directly by Bike On to deliver trail maintenance programs. If you would like to add this to your purchase you will find it added to your cart.
