Get ready to tackle the trails with an introduction to Mountain Biking.

Develop a foundation of core skills and knowledge that will allow you to ride safely and comfortably while building confidence.

During the group session we cover topics such as, but not limited to:

  • Body Position
  • Braking
  • Turning
  • Descending
  • Climbing
  • Front wheel lift
  • Rear wheel lift

Much of the initial tuition will be on flat, open ground to get warmed up, then progressing onto riding green and blue trails.

Questions are encouraged to help build solid foundations of understanding – no question is too silly and further explanation is always available if requested!

The course will last for 6 hours in total, including a break for lunch somewhere in the middle when it’s convenient for the group.

A short highlights video of the day will be available for participants – this also doubles as a great way to get feedback by seeing yourself ride.

Please bring enough food and water for the day, as well as the mandatory kit – an approved helmet, gloves and well-fitting bike in good working order. Any other equipment is welcome. Flat pedals are preferred!

See our FAQs for extra info and tips prior to the course. If you are unsure if the course if right for you, please submit a rider assessment or if you prefer to discuss directly, feel free to call or email.
