New Course Announcement
Tackling Rocks & Roots Workshop

The weather is very, very, VERY gradually warming up and we sincerely hope you have been managing to get out on your bike to enjoy the long awaited improving conditions.

Today we're announcing a brand new skills workshop that addresses two terrain types that most riders fall foul of when exploring the limits of their skills. Rocks and roots can be problematic little devils, but with right approach, both physically and mentally, we'll get you floating over them like they're not there.

Our all new Tackling Rocks & Roots Workshop looks at the techniques required to ride complex rocky and rooty terrain with speed, confidence and efficiency. You'll be amazed at how much of an upgrade to your riding this little gem of a course will give you.

Tackling Rocks & Roots is available at our Surrey Hills and Yorkshire Moors venues from this April.

See you out on the trails

NEW Tackling Rocks & Roots Workshop
Master rough terrain technique with our brand new skills workshop

A rider makes her way through the treesDo you stiffen up at the sight of greasy, wet roots up ahead? Do your wheels slip and spin regardless of what line you take? Do you sometimes walk technical sections whilst others ride them with ease? What about rocks? Does a rubble strewn trail fill you with horror and do you cringe at the sight of a rocky step?

If this sounds like you then perhaps our Tackling Rocks & Roots Workshop might be able to help. Our highly experienced mountain bike coaches will take you through the techniques necessary to flow over rocks and roots effortlessly, to pick the perfect line for maximum traction and to think yourself through to the other side.

After the workshop you will be able to ride both wet and dry roots with confidence, tackle rocky steps with ease, pick the fastest line in all conditions and to sail over complex terrain with control and commitment.

The skills taught and practiced on our Tackling Rocks & Roots Workshop include:

  • Mind skills
  • Tyre choice and pressures
  • Choosing a line; attacking and defensive lines
  • Speed control; when and where to brake
  • Climbing skills - powered front wheel lifts and rear wheel lifts
  • Descending skills - manual dropping roots & steps

Pricing Options

  • £80.00
    For morning skills course only
  • £110.00
    For morning skills course and 3 hour afternoon guided ride (Red Graded)
