TFB have the capability of delivering almost any kind of course, to almost any number of riders. We have vast experience working with groups of all sizes, with riders of all ages and skill levels and with lady’s/men’s groups only and of course, mixed groups as well.
As a guide, please find below, the standard formats that we are running at the moment and you are welcome to join in via one of these avenues. Beyond that, just contact TFB at your leisure & we will be more than happy to discuss any more specific options that you may require.
Our weekday courses are all run in the Albury Wodonga area & run during daylight savings – from early October until December & from early February until early April. One night a week for 8 weeks between 5.30 & 7.30 pm. One session is a Tech Night at Cycle Station Albury, where participants can master bike maintenance & repairs and ask any technical questions; while running wild in the workshop! Group size is small; 6 riders / 1 instructor ratio.

There have been some big changes in the structure of the junior courses. Previously, TFB had 3 different levels in the junior skills coaching, from now on it will be 5.
Level 1 Pinners: beginner. Mastering the cornerstones of MTB skills.
Level 2 Mega Pinners: semi-beginner. Covering more advanced skills but not ready yet for jumping, drop offs etc.
Level 3 Shredders: intermediate. Mastering pumping, jumping, drop offs, line choices, finer body positions.
Level 4 Mega Shredders: advanced. Occasionally racing, fine tuning the riding skills. Level 4 riders are strongly encouraged to take out a MTBA (Mountain Bike Australia) membership because it has an inbuilt insurance within it. For further info, please visit their website
Other change is the scheduling of the courses. From now on the Level 1 & Level 2 courses will ALWAYS being held on the Mondays. While Level 3 & Level 4 courses always on the Wednesdays. TFB has tried to make the after-school activity planning easier for the parents with this decision.
Double As (Advanced Adult)
For more advanced adult riders, who want to learn/develop jumping, manualing, and other advanced skills; such as tackling drop offs. TFB use purpose-build apparatus for these courses and borrows heavily from our Gravity Enduro & DHI racing experience. This course is only 4 weeks long.
School holiday programs
Let TFB wear your child out! Three hours of guided riding with a little bit of skills coaching.
The main difference between school holiday programs and weekday skills coaching is that the juniors are not separated so strictly by their age or skills levels. Also, the emphasis is on riding with a bit of sessioning. Compare with the weekday skills coaching, which mainly skills with a bit of riding.
Age group between 8 & 14 years old. Basic single trail riding knowledge is necessary. Every session is between 12 am & 3 pm, as that is the warmest part of the day. MTB must be in good working order and a helmet, gloves and water bottle are necessary to attend. Bike or helmet available for hire.
Dates: 24/09 & 01/10 at Wodonga MTB park between 12 am & 3 pm 03/10 & 10/10 at Albury between 12 am & 3 pm, meeting behind TAFE/Kalliana Ent.

Please note: TFB regretfully had to increase the price of the school holiday program by $5 to cover the online booking fee. The July school holiday program run by manually and parents contacted us on 5 different channel (email, call, text, FB & Instagram message), resulting a huge admin issue. The online booking system will simplify the admin for all parties but unfortunately comes with a small price increase.
The day after the advertised dates is available as a rain check. TFB reserves the right to cancel any session with a full refund if less than 4 riders are registered.
Weekend courses are mainly run outside of the Albury Wodonga area. We hold full day courses between 9 am & 3 pm at Yackandandah, Beechworth, Mt Beauty, Falls Creek & Wagga Wagga.
TFB are happy to travel to self–organized groups, beyond these locations as well.
