As we know everyone (or at least most) loves to ride as a way of getting out in to the environment and spending time with our friends as well as getting fit!
To ensure this opportunity is available to everyone the City of Albany is currently working in partnership with Mountain Bike Australia and Break the Boundary to see Australia’s 2nd ever Adaptive Mountain Bike Adventure Camp, held in Albany at Camp Quaranup from 16-18th February 2018.
Participants will enjoy 3 days and 2 nights in the beautiful bush-land overlooking the southern shores of West Australian in Albany for a relaxing and family-friendly camping and handcycling experience. From the coastal bush-land of the Vancouver Peninsula participants will be overlooking the majestic Royal Princess Harbour - where land meets sea!
Participants will be encouraged to jump on different equipment, learn the basics and tackle different trail features. Then when the sun sets, roast some marshmallows over the camp fire with family, friends and fellow riders!
Riders will be guided by a Mountain Bike Australia affiliated and accredited coach from Break the Boundary with the support of experienced handcycle volunteers. You'll have the opportunity to check out some cutting-edge technology. Learn where to get equipment from and different grant/funding opportunities in WA!
On the last day of the camp there will also be a “Beyond the Wheelchair: Adaptive MTB Come and Try afternoon at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre open to the whole community as part of Bike Week
Other partners contributing to the project include the Dept of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, the local Albany Mountain Bike Club. South West Mountain Bike Club and Rebound WA.
