Mountain Bike Weekend

Easter school holidays 2017

The Venturer Mountain Bike Weekend is on again and will run over four days. The Bogong Rover Chalet is again offering this unique opportunity for Venturer’s to experience Mountain Bike Riding in the Victorian High Country at a great price.

The trip will be an action packed experience, allowing Venturers to enjoy the thrills and spills of Mountain Bike Riding in some of the most highly regarded off road cycling areas in Australia.

If you are pursuing your Queen’s Scout it also offers a chance for Venturers to achieve their Outdoor 1 in Mountain Bike Riding. We will offer badge advisers, quality instruction and at least 15 hours of riding, which will include all aspects of Mountain Bike Riding including Down Hill, Cross Country, Obstacle Crossings, Bike Maintenance and Safety.

Whether you are a die-hard mountain biker or someone who would enjoy a casual ride in the scenic Victorian high country this weekend is for YOU. Venturer Leaders are encouraged to accompany their Venturers.

When: Thursday 6th April to Sunday 9th April 2017.

Cost: $80 (covers meals, accommodation, and bus transport for you and your bike).

Time: We’ll leave Melbourne (117 Heathmont Road, Heathmont) Thursday at 3:30pm and return Sunday night. If you’re organising your own transport, you can meet us there — get in touch to discuss.
