Is this course right for you?

  • The trails we will be riding will be natural trails steeper than most red graded trails, including rocky & technical features.
  • You need to have a good level of fitness as we need to ride ~4miles to & from trails as well as pushing up.
  • You must be confident riding red graded trails, have reasonable experience of riding rocky natural trails and/or have taken part in a coaching session with me before.
  • Please contact me if you are not sure.
