Mountain Bike Skills Courses

These mountain bike skills courses from the UK's leading team of instructors will change your biking dramatically, in just one day. There's a good reason why thousands of mtb enthusiasts have chosen CycleActive for their skills instruction over the last 15 years – we spend more time than any other mountain bike skills training company on research and course development – so we can bring you the latest techniques taught in the most effective way.

Get Started

This course teaches you the right skills in the right way - ideal for complete novices or those who are currently riding easier trails and want to progress to intermediate level mountain biking terrain.

Trail Skills

We work on body and foot positioning, vision training, balance, brake control and then get into the detail of high and low speed cornering, loose or rocky terrain, manuals for maintaining speed.


If your progression is starting to plateau and you are struggling to apply your newfound skills to the trail center, then an information top-up with one of our coaches is very much needed

Jumps and Drops

If you mountain bike often but just ride the trails, rather than pushing through every drop off and jump, attacking tight lines on technical trails or taking real control on fast descents – this is the course for you.

Mountain Skills

If you want to handle black graded trails and technical mountain routes with confidence, style and flow – this is the course for you. We tackle rocky descents, bunny hops, advanced line choice, and riding step ups.

Training Locations

1. The Lake District
