Mountain
Biking Workshop

Our workshop will teach you the foundations required to become a faster and more confident rider on the trails within a safe and non-competitive environment. This workshop is not only for riders that have just discovered the beauty of mountain biking but is very beneficial for experienced riders, too. Mountain biking, like any other sport, has a specific set of core skills which are not inherent. You can only become a faster rider on technical terrain once you understand the specific cues that allow you to ride smoother over rocks and roots, safer over jumps and drops, faster around berms, and tackle steep sketchy terrain. These core skills are not intuitive and not learned from experience. Rather, it needs to be learned through skills drills followed by regular practice to reach your potential. At BreakAway Rides we make sure to provide you with the tools you need to improve your mental and physical side of mountain biking.

Monthly Outrides

We are surrounded by the most diverse and spectacular mountain bike routes waiting to be discovered by you. Our monthly mountain biking escapes are meant to take you out of your known riding environment and have you dive into the breath-taking beauty of the Western Cape. You always wanted to take your bike beyond the green belts or known Tygerberg trails but don’t have ridding buddies to join you on a ride outside of Cape Town? Our monthly mountain biking escapes are your answer!

This is a guided ride which requires a good base fitness and mountain bike experience of about 6 months. You should be able to ride for about 3 hours approximately 30-35 km and 500-700m ascent.

Starting time is 9am and we will be done with the ride at about 12.30/1pm (incl. short breaks and picture time). Bring some time for coffee and lunch afterwards.
