contact usContact us for availability


Let us design the perfect biking day for you, your group or your family. With expertise in all kinds of mountain biking we can teach youngsters or adults the core skills they need to ride off-road, cover advanced riding in a whole range of terrains or focus on key areas like downhill speed, jumps or drop-offs.

Coaching Highlights: 

  • Best professional instruction in the UK
  • Flexible approach with options for all levels
  • Bike rental available too
  • Multi-day packages


The best way to develop great skills, real confidence and superb bike control is through expert coaching. At CycleActive we employ the only team of joint MBLA/CTC qualified instructors in Britain – these are the very best in the business and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve in a day or a weekend under their tutelage.

When you contact us to book a coaching day or series of days we'll find out about the biking you do, the level of the different riders in your group and what you want to achieve. We'll then bring together the best location, instructor and session plan to get your biking up to the next level.

Many people like to take a few days of coaching spread across a week, or create flexible days to suit novices in the morning and more advanced riders in the afternoon. With private coaching we can offer a whole range of options to make sure you get the very best out of your time with us.


“Without doubt the best day of instruction I have had, in any sport, ever.”

Toni Watts

“I’ve had coaching from all kinds of people over the years, and seen some great instructors on skiing trips and the like. But once in a while someone truly impressive comes along and sets a new standard for what the best instruction really is. Chris Ford of CycleActive did just this – there was no ego just clear, brilliant coaching delivered with enthusiasm and real insight.”

Chairman, Manchester Mountain Bike Club
