Intermediate MTB - Half Day

Our half-day Intermediate coaching classes are designed for women riders who are feeling confident riding the blue trails and who are now wanting to ride more challenging trails with technical features. We will guide you through a range of MTB techniques from cornering and pumping to manual and power-assisted front wheel lifts. 


The coaching sessions take place at Glentress Forest in small groups with a maximum number of 6 riders in each class. The emphasis is on learning in a fun and relaxed environment with lots of whooping and back-slapping on hand if needed!

  Classes can include coaching on:

  • Weight shifting
  • Track stand
  • Manual front-wheel lift
  • Power-assisted front wheel lift
  • Rear wheel lift
  • Step-up
  • Rolling drop-offs
  • Pumping and absorbing
  • Negotiating rocky sections
  • Riding in mud and over roots
  • Technical climbing and descending
  • Cornering

Brilliant skills session with Lucy. Excellent teacher, explaining everything clearly. Learned so much - manuals, pedal assist front wheel lifts, rear wheel lifts, and just general pointers on my riding. Can't wait to put it all into practice on the trails!   Amy April 2016


Thanks to Lucy for a great afternoon improving my technical skills! I have lots to practise but now I know what to work on & how to do it.                  Isla July 2016
