Sport and coaching scientist Andy Patterson runs the regional development pathway for mountain bike in partnership with New Plymouth Mountain Bikers. The group sessions are split onto 3 groups Launch, Rockets and Stars for Novice, intermediate and advanced ability groups respectively.

Sessions allow riders to learn off-road skills in a fun, social environment. We coach using constraints methods of learning and the riders develop their own skills in their own way in their own time.

Training for summer 2020 is at Lake Mangamahoe, Plantation Rd, SH3 Sundays 10am – Noon

Entry is Free however it is a mandatory requirement to have a junior or family membership of New Plymouth Mountain Bikers to register with the Firstgas Rockets which can be done here

Firstgas Rockets Booking in

Please note that during the current Covid-19 government restrictions we are running a booking system for the three Firstgas Rockets Groups on Sunday Mornings. I have limited each group to 15 riders to ensure a better learning environment.

1. Please find the correct booking group, Launch (novice), Rockets (intermediate) Stars (advanced) and book your child onto the group.

2. Please check the quantity and update the cart

3. If you have more than one child in different groups you will need to book them individually into those different groups.

4. Please list your childs name when going through the booking form not the parents name.

5. Firstgas Rockets are required to wear a Rockets jersey. Those who have not been able to purchase a jersey since the last order need to use a loan jersey that is returned to us at the end of the session. Please add in the notes on the booking form if you require a loan jersey.
