Confidence Builder


Build confidence by developing the key skills that underpin a wide range of mountain bike riding, from descending, to drops and jumps.

  • Weight shift and position: learn how to adapt your body position and contact points to negotiate trail features
  • Spatial awareness: discover how to read the trail ahead of you and how your bike and body will move through it
  • Cornering
  • Braking and grip: learn the key skills to master descending
  • Pedalling and gearing
  • Bike setup: suspension, tyre pressure, bike fit

This course isnt specifically for beginners. If you are struggling to make progress (at whatever level), then focusing on honing core techniques can unlock more complex skills. Whether that’s learning to manual further, or lateral bunny hop or roosting flat turns.
