With 4 different types of skill courses to choose from in 2020, at two venues across England. Our mountain biking skills courses have something to offer everyone.

1 or 2 days

Many riders like to make a full weekend of their training – especially if traveling to a new location – so we’ve planned some great combinations over full weekends to make this happen.

For example, we often run Trail Skills on the Saturday with Jumps and Drops on the Sunday for a full multi-skilled weekend.

Whatever skills you come to us with, from novice off-roader to regular mountain biker or elite racer, our comprehensive range of courses will take you to the next level.

Private Tuition (any level)

Private coaching can have a huge impact on your biking in a very short space of time. We offer this service throughout the year to small groups and individuals who want to really focus in on their biking skills.

Our instructors are the most highly qualified, experienced and widely respected you’ll find, and their focussed attention will bring impressive results in a very short space of time.
