What to bring
Your child should have a suitable bike with functioning brakes (not back-pedal!), handlebar grips that cover the exposed bar-ends, dirt-specific tyres with a decent amount of tread and a seat height that allows the child to touch the ground with both feet.
Safety equipment is critical - please ensure your child has a well-fitted helmet that meets Australian standards. We recommend safety glasses or sunglasses, and please bring a water bottle. Additional protective gear such as gloves, knee pads etc is not necessary but recommended.
See the parent information sheet for full details.
How to join
To ensure that riders are covered by insurance and public liability, each child must have a current MTBA (Mountain Bike Australia) membership and a Cape Mountain Bikers membership. You can sign your child up for both memberships simultaneously for a total cost of $46 per year by going to mtba.asn.au/membership/ and nominating Cape Mountain Bikers as your club during the application process (MTBA also offers free trial memberships - check their site for details).
Once you have your child's MTBA membership number, complete the Enrolment Form, Waiver and Media Consent Form. Payment can be made as per the payment methods specified on the enrolment form. Email the completed forms to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or return them in person at a Monday afternoon session.
See the parent information sheet for full details on how to enroll.
Parents and volunteers are welcome to come along for free - all we ask is that you have a valid MTBA and CMB membership.
