Our Peak District Mountain Bike Skills course will look at your current riding style and seek to identify and correct any bad habits that may have developed. It uses the fundamental skills from the introduction course to create a more proactive and relaxed riding style to help you further develop beyond this course. We will session sections of trails to develop key skills and use constructive clear feedback to help you make progress. You should be riding more confidently on the technical terrain such as that found in the Peak District or on more technical trail obstacles on Trail Centre Red routes. Our instructors are all CTC or MIAS qualified MTB Guides and use modern coaching techniques to help you get the most from the course.
