What to expect

Dread drop offs? Sketchy on Steeps? Hopeless with bunny hops? Then this is the session for you! In these hour and a half evening sessions, we focus on a different skill each week. We'll give you tips and tools you need to improve your MTB technique, ready to take to the trails. These sessions run every Wednesday evening in term time, starting on Wednesday the 17th of April. You can sign up for the whole series or dip in and out based on your personal preferences. The sessions are open to all abilities. We'll always start with the basics of each technique (you can't build on shaky foundations), then move on to refining the specific skill of the week. This one is just for the ladies, and female led, so expect a friendly session with lots of encouragement. We'll never push you to do something you're uncomfortable with, but do hope to move the level of your comfort zone up a little :) The planned sessions are outlined below, so you can pick and mix, them based on your biking experience; April 17th - Body Position - the building block for everything else! April 24th - week off May 1st - Braking - Learn which brake to use when and how! May 8th - Choosing lines - Taking control of your own path. May 15th - Cornering - Make an impact on every ride you take. May 22nd - Riding Rocks - Big rocks, little rocks and rock rollers. May 29th - Drop offs - All the ways you can get your bike down a drop off.
