Our 4 hour coaching class is designed for novice riders who are out enjoying the blue trails but not sure how to negotiate features when the terrain gets a bit gnarlier. The coaching session takes place at Glentress Forest in small groups with a maximum number of 6 riders in each class. The emphasis is on breaking features down so the rider understands what techniques are required for riding a variety of typical features found on Blue and Red graded trails. We take the ‘mystery’ out of more technical features so they are safe and fun to ride.
Classes include tuition on:
- ‘Attack’ position
- Pumping & absorbing
- Weight-shifting for climbing & descending
- Developing balance – half-pedalling & track-stands
- Rolling drop-offs
- Riding roots & rocks
- Descending & technical climbing
Is this course for me? You have been riding MTB for a while and have a reasonable level of fitness on Green and Blue trails but generally avoid features on the trail as you’re not sure how to tackle them.
