Subsequent to an accident whilst out riding my mountain bike on the trails amongst the Surrey Hills (it was my fourth ride out and I ran out of talent), my wife bought me a 2 hour skills voucher with Scott as a birthday gift. It has to be one of the best birthday presents I've ever had. Scott is a great guy and makes you feel at ease in no time. I was impressed with Scotts ability to articulate and demonstrate in such a way that it makes it very easy to understand what he is asking of you which means you get to maximum your time and ultimately maximum what you learn from Scott. What I took away with me after my 2 hours was incredibly valuable. I quickly established that I've been doing it all wrong, right down to my positioning, my braking, my line of vision, pretty much everything. Thanks to Scott I now feel far more confident and far more comfortable on my bike, so much so that I feel I can now begin to explore the full potential of my bike and enjoy my time on the trails so much more. If you are new to mountain biking or if you are planning to take up mountain biking, I would seriously recommend that you buy some time with Scott and avoid making the same mistakes I made and get a head start by learning from a master instead of learning the hard way. Great job Scott and thank you for your expert tuition.

A great Father's Day present - I have been mountain biking for years but never had any coaching like this - really improved my control of the bike, my speed downhill, particularly around the technical parts of the woods - all whist having a good laugh.....very highly recommend!

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!

<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>

<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>

<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>

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!
