Q. I'm very new to mountain biking, I'm worried I will be the only beginner at the course. Will I be made to feel stupid?
A. You are the reason we exist! Everyone had to start somewhere, and we can show you the techniques you will need to become more confident on a mountain bike, in a fun and reassuring manner.
Q. My fitness is very low, do I need to get in shape first?
A. When you register for one of our courses, you will fill in a form asking about your current riding ability. You will then be put into a group of people similar to your own level. On average most groups cover less than 10km over a 4 hour course.
Q. My bike is very old without any suspension, can I use it?A. As long as your bike is checked by a bicycle mechanic and is in good condition. However as a beginner you will find it much better with a modern mountain bike that has some suspension. We have a fleet of Giant hire bikes you can hire for the course.
Q. Can I book for a private or small group course?A. Yes, however due to our busy schedule we are normally only available for private lessons mid week. Contact us for more details.
