Spirited Women

Bike Craft is proud to support Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Racing

We provide Mountain Bike (MTB) Coaching Clinics to Spirited Womens entrants that are tailored to your event.  We will give you added confidence and skills on the bike to make the MTB sections of the adventure race more enjoyable.

What is a Bike Craft Clinic?

A 3 hour dedicated session with a qualified and experienced MTB Coach and World Masters Champion

Our Clinics have a very heavy skills focus as the majority of riders (regardless of their skill level) do not do the fundamentals correctly and therefore limit their ability to progress their riding. Clinics are geared toward Beginner and Intermediate riders but we are more than happy to accommodate Advanced Riders with private sessions if they request them.

We cover key aspects of riding such a braking, body position, cornering, trail scanning, how to negotiate tree roots, ruts and rocks…all things that you may encounter on your adventure...and how to adjust your riding for 4WD tracks, gravel roads and Grade 2/3 MTB trails and weather conditions on the day. We also show you how to make quick repairs to your bike and give you helpful team tips for the biking sections. 

These Clinics are jam packed with information and its hard to remember it all so I am more than happy for entrants to email me anytime after your Clinic with burning questions you may have prior to the event:


Learning and Applying Skills: The majority of our session will be spent on the bike learning key skills in a fun and supportive manner and then venturing onto a piece of trail/road and applying the skills in the environments that you are likely to encounter to ensure that you ride with more confidence, you ride safer and you have improved technique.

Bike Fit and Bike Repair/Maintenance: We check the setup of your bike and adjust if necessary. We show you how to make basic repairs to your bike on event day so your race does not end prematurely and teach you general care of your bike, plus we provide you with some tips to help you and your team mates on the bike sections.

COST: Individual Rider $139 (Register online)

TEAMS: $125 per rider. If your entire team wants to do a clinic please email me to register.

Note: To ensure quality of Clinics, our groups are limited to a maximum of 12 participants.

Bike Craft Clinics are for everyone, regardless of ability!

Everyone can learn something at a Bike Craft Clinic regardless of your current skill level. From my extensive experience teaching bike skills, it is really clear that the vast majority of riders do not do the basics correctly and therefore limit their ability to progress.

If you get the fundamentals right then your riding will advance in leaps and bounds.

I can assure you that you will leave a Bike Craft Clinic a much safer and confident rider and you will have the mindset to take on terrain and obstacles that you currently fear.

So accept the challenge and upskill with a Bike Craft Clinic tailor made for Spirited Womens events.
