Trail Skills - Intermediate

( Red route rider )

£

95

Per Person

Skills Itinerary

  1. Manuals
  2. Technical climbing
  3. Descending techniques
  4. Advanced braking
  5. Unweighting
  6. Vision (line choice)
  1. Cornering slow
  2. Cornering fast
  3. Front wheel lift (wheelie)
  4. Rear wheel lift
  5. and more ....

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

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 and possibly other skills (depending on time and group progress).

This is probably the best course you will ever buy to improve your trail riding.

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.
