What past Riders   have to say.... 

Drove 2 hours to take part in a one day MTB course, and it was well worth it. Solid coaching, with a focus on fundamentals that will, with practice, yield efficient and safe riding and an improved skillset.

The coaches were knowledgeable, approachable, and the other riders were friendly and positive. It was like riding with friends, even though we'd only just met. Fond memories and I will likely return to take part again.

Harry

I was able to attend a 1-day mini adventure skill jam...Charlotte and JF were the coaches at this event and were both fabulous. They specifically targeted what people were aiming to improve on (eg. Turns, wheel lifts etc) in a closed course setting and then later helped riders apply what they learned on a trail ride.

 

I was able to appreciate improvements in myself and other riders throughout the day. They were so clear in their instructions and the overall environment was very positive and fun! 10/10 would recommend for new and experienced riders looking to improve their riding.

Debora

We can't wait to ride with you!
