Frequently asked questions
what is the participation fee?
The course participation fee is EGP 1200/person (not including gear rentals, if required). To reserve a spot in the course we ask for payment via bank deposit (preferred) or credit card to secure your place in the course. We will keep the number of participants as small as possible in order to be able to have an effective (and fun!) learning environment. Accordingly, final confirmation of participation will be sent immediately after payment of the course fee.
What if I don't have a suitable bike?
It is expected that for the two practical components of the course, you have your own mountain bike and helmet. Any basic mountain bike will do.
MTB Egypt has a very limited number of rental bikes. Inquire about availability before registering for the course.
