What past Riders have to say....
I've been riding for many years, even doing some advanced stuff, but the coaches showed me how to do things that I was never able to do (or at least, do well, or fast!). The afternoon spent sessioning & riding the trails with Charlotte proved just how awesome the skill learning was! Cleared some gnarly stuff with focus and confidence, and felt amazing with my progress!
An all-around excellent course. Charlotte certainly is technically very advanced. She quickly built up a skill set from week one through to our final week of being able to jump obstacles and do more technically advanced features.
The pace is solid and the learning is critical. You go from being somebody who rides a mountain bike to someone who knows how to position themselves appropriately given the terrain, braking strategies, how to take jumps and how to get over obstacles with relative ease.
After the program, you’ll be far more confident because you actually know what you are doing rather than guessing at most of it. I highly recommend the course and Charlotte!
We can't wait to ride with you!
