There is nothing worse than hitting a jump or drop while being rigid on the bike and out of knowledge. Our jumps and drops mountain bike course aims to allow you to progressively learn the MTB skills needed to negotiate the many airtime features found on modern bike trails, through detailed skills sessions, while keeping you in control.

" Our Jumps and Drops course is designed with the red route rider in mind, who is searching for the floating feeling when both wheels are off the ground but would like to replace the associated fear with key learning points, allowing for safe progression. "

Jumps and Drops Course Content

Course Content

Manual front wheel lift - This is the gateway to floating your front wheel off any drop

Drop offs - Both slow speed and faster drops allowing for all features

Roll offs - intaining a suitable, stable body position throughout

Tabletops - Aiming for the downslope, in control

Maintaining control in the air - Knowing what to do when you approach and hit a jump

Squashing and neutralising bumps - Sometimes flying through the air isn’t the best option

Pumping trail - Gaining speed and grip without pedalling

Structured progression is paramount with jump and drops, as the consequences are high if you run out of skill. Through different coaching methods we are great a pushing your ability, while maintaining control, so you leave the day excited to keep practicing.
