About this event

This course is aimed at 11 -14 year olds who are new to mountain biking. The three day camp will help riders to build a foundation of skills helping them gain confidence and stability whilst on the trails.

Skills are broken down and practiced in a safe area, then we hit the trails and practice them for real! Riders should come away with lots of tips and tricks to take away with them to practice and develop what they’ve learned.

Intermediate riders can progress their riding by correcting any bad habits, refining their skills and gain more flow and efficiency on the trails.

• CORNERING How to maintain grip and control through position, line choice and braking
