This one day course is ideal for both beginner and intermediate mountain bike riders. Participants will practice the key skills in trail riding including: optimum use of gears and brakes, building confidence on corners and steep slopes, and all the tricks to stay on the bike while the terrain gets tough. The course is a workshop-oriented day where participants will build-up their skills to transfer by the end of the day to a purpose built circuit of man-made obstacles and trail sections.
The course will also provide an overview of bike set-up, equipment options, and suggested trails for future rides. Participants must already know how to ride a bike comfortably on roads and have at least a basic level of fitness. Quality bike rentals are also available.
