Intro to MTB – age 8 up

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

With low participant numbers, the idea is to suit the ride to your off-road ambitions and build basic skills and confidence.

Our half day intro course is designed for young riders new to mountain biking but proficient on road riding (eg Bikeability 2) The coaching sessions are appropriate for riders at an introduction or beginner level and are designed to build confidence.

HOW LONG?

The two-hour course focuses on developing core biking techniques.

THE BASICS?

The sessions include coaching on:

  • Braking
  • The ‘ready’ position
  • Pedalling (or Not!)
  • Gear selection
  • Cornering
  • Climbing & descending
  • Developing balance for slow riding/stationary balance
  • Line Selection
  • Small Drop-offs

OWN BIKE OR HIRE?

You will need to provide a working bike suitable for offroad riding, a helmet and gloves – Don’t worry if you don’t have these yet as these can be hired from our partners at Bewdley Outdoors

WHERE?

The coaching is conducted on local carefully designed maintained cross-country MTB trails.

No previous experience is required and participants should be able to spend a few hours in the saddle.
