Is the mountain bike fundamentals course the right course for me?

Yes, if you are new to mountain biking and want to learn the skills needed to ride on technical trails with confidence. You will need to be able to ride a bike confidently on even terrain and have the fitness to be able to ride up moderate hills.

We ask that you bring suitable clothing for riding, shoes, helmet and gloves. Unfortunately we are not able to offer bike hire but this is available locally if you wish. Please get in touch and we can help you with arrangements.

“I went on a canoeing course with Louise and it was really nice to have a female coach. She was able to teach me in a way that suited me as a female paddler and I felt much more comfortable with her than I have in the past with some male coaches. She understood my learning needs and allowed me to relax, but at the same time challenged me when necessary. Her technical ability was really good and she has inspired me to push myself further. Louise is a great coach and I am very keen to book again in the future!”
