Rocks and Rolls
Sydney has some of the most unique and technically demanding riding in the world, with rock, rock and more rock! If you’re not confident to get your wheels up and down the countless sandstone ledges, roll downs and steps, you’re probably not having a whole load of fun. If you find yourself walking small sections of the Manly Dam trail or choosing to take the B-lines, then this clinic is for you!
In this clinic we’ll teach you the skills you need to rule the rocks and rolls, giving your riding more flow and control, using less effort and enjoying the technical challenging parts of the trails much more! After reinforcing our fundamental skills, we’ll work up to more advanced skills and session them on progressively more difficult trail features.
This workshop is also perfect for anyone who's completed our Fundamentals skills clinic and, after spending some time refining the skills learnt on that clinic, is now ready to expand their range of skills and ride more challenging trail features.

WHAT YOU SAY
Big thanks to Fi and Joe at Chocolate Foot for the excellent skills session. I did the Rocks and Rolls clinic and it was the perfect mix of skills development, technique practice and all round good fun. I conquered new lines that would have remained a pipe dream without their support. This clinic has definitely cranked up the fun factor!
Went back again to Manly Dam, it was like I was riding a different trail. Did most of the A lines and really had a ball. Thanks for the lesson, it made a difference.
We had a brilliant 3 hours with Fi and Joe yesterday on their ‘Rocks and Rolls’ clinic.
We sessioned the tricky bits and everyone made heaps of progress and rode stuff that they hadn’t ridden before.
Fi and Joe are a great team - skilled riders, great teachers and supportive/assertive as required.
I’m definitely a much better and more confident rider now than I was before the session.
Excellent fun, heartily recommended.
