MTB Skills Courses

Trail Blazing Keeping it Loose

A full day’s course based at Sherwood Pines Forest Park working on the fundamental techniques of MTB riding; body position, body movement, vision, braking, cornering, steps n drops. We develop these core skills in the arena area before heading out on the trails, where we put your new skills into practice and keep it loose to build your confidence.

 

Trail Blazing Keeping it Loose is a great way to introduce the family to the joys of MTB riding. Everyone gets to learn the fundamentals together and everyone develops at their own pace whilst having a lot of fun in this family activity. It's a great way to boost all the families confidence and skills. Sometimes our younger, more energetic and enthusiastic riders  can tire  themselves quickly so we can also offer this as a half day course.

Trail Blazing Dialling it In

Following a quick recap of those core MTB skills; body position, body movement, vison, braking, cornering, steps n drops in the Sherwood Pines Forest Park arena, we head out onto specially selected trail area’s for a full day’s coached riding where we iron out any bad habits, fine tune those techniques and really dial in those skills to become a smoother, faster and more confident trail centre rider.
