  • Course Description

    A great course if you are new to mountain biking, or a little more experienced but never been taught the fundamentals of riding off-road.

    Our Core Skills MTB course will give you the basic skills to get out on the trails tackling technical terrain with confidence and commitment. Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in confidence. You'll understand how changes in your body position, footwork and where you are looking affect the way your bike behaves on the trails. You'll be able to tackle steeper terrain, corner with greater control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease. 

    So what are the Core Skills? 

    Bike Set Up - Getting the bike to work for you, looking at saddle, suspension and brake set up.
    Weight Shift and the Cone of Movement - If you don't move you will fall off, this is where riding starts.
    Track Stands - The ability to balance, the most important skill to learn when it comes to riding a mountain bike.
    Manual Front Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the front wheel over an obstacle using body position and weight shift.
    Power Assisted Front Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the front wheel at slow speed over an obstacle whilst climbing.
    Rear Wheel Lifts - The ability to lift the rear wheel over an obstacle.
    As well as the 4 core skills, we give you a thorough breakdown and understanding of climbing, descending and braking.
