Rockets MTB Development pathway

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 is at Lake Mangamahoe, Plantation Rd, SH3 Sundays 10am – Noon
