Mountain Bike Skills Coaching
Mountain Bike Skills Coaching:
Mountain Bike Skills Coaching with a qualified British Cycling Level 2 Coach.
On a bespoke mountain bike skills training ride our qualified Coaches will be able to help you with all aspects of your riding. Our Mountain Bike Leaders will be happy to tailor our skills coaching sessions to you and your group - to work with you to build your skills and confidence. With such varied terrain on offer the Lake District is the perfect place to practice your mountain bike trail riding technique and to learn and apply core bike handling skills. Prices.
On a mountain bike skills course we can cover a wide range of skills: body position and weight distribution / front and rear wheel lifts / braking and corning / bunny-hops, side-hops, drop-offs and jumps / advanced technical descending and climbing. All tailored to your needs.
Skills coaching course options (run on request):
Core Skills - Suitable for riders of all skills levels, but particularly those new to mountain biking or who have not covered core skills before. This is a day working on skills and technique, in particular your position on the bike / wheel lifts / braking and cornering.
Technical skills - As you might imagine we specialise in the skills needed to ride technical lake district terrain - usually a combination of loose, rocky and steep. Spend a day with us working on braking / line choice / advanced technique and cornering.
Enduro skills and race craft - we are keen Enduro racers, capable of a podium or two, so if you're looking to speed things up and beat your mates we can give you lots of hints and tips! We spend the day concentrating on descending skills, but also discussing preparation, race craft and kit choice.
Family skills - If you're a family after a skills session to ensure the kids are riding safely - and perhaps to give you a few pointers too - well, we love to work with families too! We are family friendly and with little ones ourselves we are used to motivating and teaching skills to youngsters - as well as giving you the confidence to keep up with them!
