Mentored Mondays

New for Summer 2023/2024 we are offering parents the opportunity to send their kids out during the school holidays on supervised rides with our experienced and qualified coaches to explore harder trails at the upper end of what they can ride, and that parents might not be available or willing to ride.
The Gravity coach will mentor the kids on how to progress their riding safely, scout and session features, and obviously manage their safety. The emphasis is on exploring new trails further afield that we can’t usually get to during a normal coaching session, and we allow 3-4 hours for each session. These will regularly be available on Monday’s, but can also be organised on an ad hoc basis depending on coach availability. These will be done at a discounted rate of $40 per kid per session (with a minimum of FIVE kids in a group) rather than the usual $100 person/session for adult private coaching. The more advanced riders in the Gravity Development Squad could particularly benefit from these sessions by heading to legendary “Gnarly” trails like 629, Peaking, Whaimana, Aorere etc. There is also potential to take groups to Cable Bay. At this stage shuttles aren’t part of the package, so kids need to be ready for a solid pedal/push to the top.
Kids will need to bring appropriate protective gear, bikes in good condition, snacks, water, and riding gear.

Summer 2023/2024 School Holiday sessions will be held as per the calendar below, click the link on the date you are interested in to BOOK NOW.  Alternatively email us on to request a custom date.

My 9 year old son participates in the Termly Coaching Classes with Gravity and I’ve been so pleased with the growth in his skill and confidence on a bike in such a short time. He’s a keen shredder now and has started to enter into local events for fun and the experience. Thank you Team Gravity!

We booked Gravity for a 1 day private shuttle trip to the Wairoa Gorge, and they did an amazing job. Alistair did an excellent job setting everything up, Alex was an excellent guide, and the bikes we rented were top notch.The day was a total bucket list experience and they made sure it lived up to the hype. Alex provided coaching throughout the day, and having Andy around (who helped build these trails) was so cool to get the backstory and local knowledge. Book them, you won’t regret it!
