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.
