What days are coaching sessions available?
Coaching is available 7 days a week. Different coaches work different days, between us, we've got someone who will be available at a time that suits you.
Do I need to be a good rider?
No. Whether it is your first time off road or you are a seasoned racer, Dirt Skills deliver coaching sessions tailored to your skill and ability.
What sort of bike do I need?
You do not need an expensive bike to participate in Dirt Skills coaching sessions. Any modern mountain bike in good working order will be suitable. Two working brakes are a must. Bikes with suspension are recommended but not essential.
What protective gear do I need?
You must wear a correctly fitted, Australian Standards approved, modern helmet; those with MIPS or similar anti-rotational technologies are advisable. Other protective gear such as gloves, elbow and knee pads are recommended.
If your coaching session is at Boomerang Farm, please check their conditions of entry for age specific requirements for protective gear.
What should I bring?
It is your responsibility to bring enough water for the session as well as any medication you might need.
Basic tools and spares such as a multi-tool and inner tube are great to carry. It's never fun getting stuck in the bush with a broken bike.
For Boomerang Farm sessions, do I need to book my own shuttles?
If you're booking a session at Boomerang Farm, please complete your park entry before your session with Dirt Skills by following the BOOK NOW link on the Boomerang Farm website.
Am I covered by insurance while participating in coaching sessions?
Insurance coverage is your own responsibility.
