Group skills session are a great way to improve your mountain bike riding technique, socialise and get feedback from fellow riders.

To get the most out of your skills session, it’s advisable to ride with others at a similar level. If everyone is at a similar level of ability, they’re much more likely to be equally involved and comfortable making progress at a pace that satisfies the whole group.

Skills rides are split into both general levels of ability and specific areas of technique. If you want to work on something specific, eg jumping, you should ride with other people intending on developing the same skills. This allows the group to focus on an area of learning and therefore maximise the time and expertise available.

We can also provide customised sessions, at a location of your choice. If have a local trail or feature that you’d like to work on, we can come to you and help you understand what’s required to tackle it safely and with confidence.

Check our events calendar to book in for a skills course, or get in touch to organise a custom session with your group.
