Mountain Bike Tuition Skills TrainingMountain Bike Tuition Skills Training-The Next Level

Challenge yourself ~ Full Day Course ~ £130

Let us at Mountain Bike Tuition help get your bike skills to the next level, boost your confidence and learn new techniques.

This is a full day’s course for those who have already completed either the Forest Rider or Ladies Beginners course, or who have already ventured out onto the smaller mountain bike singletracks, only to bump slowly over obstacles. Also those that have been riding mountain bikes for a while and don’t feel that they are improving.

We’ll start with a back to basics session, refreshing the Mountain Biking techniques covered in the Forest Rider and Ladies Beginners course, or correcting any bad biking habits you may have picked up along the way. The focus will then step up a gear to cover:

  • Bike set up.
  • Rider position, Control or attack position, and how to adapt this to the ever changing features on the trails
  • Understanding traction to get the grip you need
  • Cornering with ease.
  • Lifting the front wheel to cope with common trail obstacles such as roots or puddles
  • Small drops and bomb holes.
  • Gear selection for hill climbing

Price £130 per rider

Group ratio minimum of two riders and a maximum of four to every instructor.
