Mountain Bike Leadership Award Trail Cycle Leader, REC First Aid and Cytech Certified Mechanic.
Whether you want to explore this hills or have someone guide you round one of the more established mountain bike venues then a guided ride could be for you.
Rides can be tailored for your needs and experience and a location to suite you. You could chose to have a guided ride around the more established areas such as Hopton, Eastridge or the Longmynd. Or you may wish to get out and about and ride such trails as the Jack Mytton Way or the IMBA Trans-Cambrian Way.
Whether you’re just starting out or have been biking for years a coaching session can be one of the best value upgrades you can get. These sessions are available for all levels and are tailored to your needs.
You tell us what you want to get out of the day and then we can put together a session to get the best progression in your riding. The overall aim will be to enjoy your time on the bike and make you a better rider.
If you’ve ever wanted to get away from the trail centres and plan and ride your own routes but lacked the knowledge or confidence then this could be the course for you.
During the day you’ll learn the skills required to plan a route, appreciate what terrain will be like from looking at the map, and what to do when you’re unsure of your position or lost.
If you’re just looking to refresh your navigation skills or can only spare half a day and just want to cover the very basics we can do that. On the full day there will be some theory first thing in the morning, followed by planning a ride for the afternoon and putting it all into practise.
