Unit topic three: Mountain biking; term two (four weeks)


Students will be introduced to the sport of mountain biking. This will be done through an investigation of the principles surrounding mountain biking. The basics of clothing and equipment will be introduced at school, while basic riding skills will be developed at school and by using the mountain bike tracks within the Wanaka area.

This will require the students to develop riding skills to complete a minimum of three rides of at least one hour long for unit 20137. People credited with this unit standard are able to: prepare for mountain biking on easy to intermediate terrain; complete mountain bike rides on non-sealed surfaces of easy to intermediate terrain; and demonstrate responsible environmental and safety practices.
