<div>The lesson really helped with my cornering and jumps! It's was a brilliant and fun day out. Scott was a great teacher who explained things really well and I learnt a lot . My best mate Harvey who came too said "I can't thank Skip enough for what he taught me I had a fab day"</div>

Great Learning and Lots of Fun!

User Review

Good Points
Great instruction; lots of content but delivered in a relaxed and fun style. I learnt a great deal in just a couple of hours. And Skip was able to tailor the experience to stretch us just the right amount, adjusting the exercises for each participant to ensure everyone got the most from the session. Will definitely be coming back for more!

Skip was excellent. He understood our group very quickly and got the perfect balance of tuition and fun! Weekend couldn't have been any better planned. His knowledge of the trails was amazing. He picked out routes that tested us just the right amount.
Thanks!

A day to remember

I honestly can say I was a doubter about this when my wife booked it for me, but what a great day. After a couple of hours with Scott (skip) I was flying down some technical flowing single tracks with good drops and burms. In fact at this weekends mtb race I clicked fastest on strava downhill section for that day!! Just need to get faster up hill!!! I'm going back to SHAC for more!!

Fantastic Introduction to Mountainbiking

User Review

Good Points
<div><br /><br /><br /><br />Superb intro to Mountainbiking for the kids. They set off with eager anticipation and returned filthy dirty and beaming. Group leader Skip obviously has the patience and the skill to calm even the wildest of 10 year olds. What a great day.&nbsp;</div>

Cycling is ace with Skip

User Review

Good Points
<div>Raff, Tom and I went on a two hour cycling lessen around the trails on Holmbury Hill.<br /><br />We all would like to thank Skip for helping us improve our cycling skills. We would also like to thank him for helping us when we felt unsure about some of the trails. It was excellent the way he stopped and spoke to us when we didn't know what to do.&nbsp;<br /><br />Before we started doing the trails Skip taught us how to get in our core position. He also taught us how to brake for when we are going down the hills on the trails. Because he did such good teaching we all went down the trails with a confidence that we didn't have before.<br /><br />We all think it was extremely good and enjoyable. Raff, Tom and I now feel much more confident about cycling. We now are not afraid as much as we were about going on steep narrow trails.<br /><br />We would like to give Skip ten out of ten for being such a great leader!</div>

MTB tuition

Really great fun day out, Scott's expert knowledge of the area and MTB skills were really helpful for a beginner like myself. Will definitely go again soon!

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks, it seems ...

User Review

Good Points
<div>My wife and I won a school raffle and chose as our prize a mountain-bike intro session with Scott from SHAC. Best Choice Ever. Neither of us had done any proper mountain biking before. It was brilliant. Scott did a great job in teaching us the basic techniques, in a thoroughly exhilarating session. He dealt admirably with our different styles (I am ever-so slightly kamikaze, my wife is more sensible), and we both had a lot of fun. I've now bought a bike and have started riding regularly - and love every minute of it. Good stuff all round!&nbsp;</div>
