Course level is beginners so no previous experience is required. Fitness is not important as we will be concentrating on learning the skills required and not on how far or fast we can go!

I am running mountain bike skills rides from various locations around Dorset on a Thursday morning. Start at 10am for around 2 hours at an easy pace which will be suitable for anyone including beginners.  I will post the location on Facebook a few days before so if you are interested please check out my social media or get in touch with me.  £10 cash on the day.

Come and learn practical and useful mountain bike cross country skills (no jumping or wheelies!) with an experienced and qualified instructor.
