This course is for riders with trail riding experience who are looking to build a solid foundation of fundamental skills, and especially for anyone who has previously taken one or more lesson with us and is looking to continue building skills and confidence on the trail.

Over 3 sessions we will cover core fundamental skills and maneuvers as a basis for riding trail features and towards more directed coaching in subsequent lessons.

We have observed riders doing multiple sessions have a significant consolidation and refinement of skills leading to soaring confidence and consistent performance on the bike.

We will work on skills, revisit and refine them as we progress through our proven trail-based skills program.  Session work on intermediate features allows for repeated trials and adjustment of skill and maneuver elements.  We break down riding into pieces so we can make small changes, and practice to understand the results.  Video analysis is used to help with review and analysis where practical.

Fundamental skills include body position for stability, energy conservation, balance, climbing and braking.  Additional work includes trail scanning for line selection, roll-down techniques and drops up to 2 feet.  We adapt the sessions based on participating rider's skills and requirements.  Learning is at your pace and we do not pressure riders to attempt anything that makes you uncomfortable. 

We will also cover bike set-up and basic suspension adjustment.  It is important to practice the way you play, so we highly recommend you wear your elbow and knee pads and your hydration pack.

Note that this is NOT a group ride, nor VO2 training, program.  We learn, practice develop and adapt skills on easy to intermediate trail and features to help you improve your riding.  We practice through repetition and adaptation. 

If you would like to book for a group of friends, reach out early to plan dates! (These courses sell out!)
