This Mountain Bike course is ideal for those wanting to venture off-road but feel they do not have the skills or confidence to do so safely.  It is also aimed at riders who may have been riding off-road for a while but feel they would benefit from a Mountain Bike Skills development course.
This course will introduce the necessary skills to ride more confidently and safely off-road.  Our MTB instructors are all CTC qualified MTB Guides and use modern coaching techniques to help you get the most from the course.

This course starts with a warm-up and skills check before introducing the core mountain bike skills. Staff tailor each course to suit the participants so as to provide the best progression for all taking part.

Course Prerequisites: 

Ideally you should have been mountain biking regularly for around a year. If you ride at trail centres then you may be reasonably happy riding blue graded trails.

Equipment Required: 

A serviced and well maintained mountain bike suitable for off-road riding is a must, as is a helmet. A waterproof jacket, something to drink and a few snacks are also needed.  We would strongly recommend wearing gloves, even in the summer. Please contact us if you need to hire a bike.
