  • Course Description

    Designed for those who are new to Road Biking. This course will put you on the right track by giving you the confidence to control your road bike, not the bike control you and how to deal with mechanicals so you can fix that puncture yourself plus much more.

    Having ran many courses for all ages and abilities we have learn't that there is not such thing as a 'stupid question'. New riders often have many questions but feel they can not ask their partner or riding buddy for the answer. We know just how important it is to feel independent whilst riding your bike and not have to rely on making that dreaded call home to be picked up due to a mechanical you could have easily fixed yourself or to have fallen victim to an unnecessary tumble that you know could have been preventable if only you had asked the right question.
    This course will answer all these questions plus many more to get you riding and smiling like never before.

    The course will cover the following:

    How to put your bike into and out of your car - includes removing and replacing wheels
    The basic kit to take out with you - to fully enjoy your ride
    How to set the bike up - so it feels comfortable to ride
    How to fix a puncture - the most common mechanical we encounter
    How to use your gears correctly - be in the right gear at the right time
    How to not be scared of your brakes - your dad was wrong, front is best!
    The best riding positions for both uphill and downhill
    The basics of how to ride the trail with a smile not a grimace!
    The day will end with a thorough debrief whilst drinking tea and eating cake.
