Mountain Bike Skills Courses

Family Improvers Coaching Sessions

Progress your off-road skills together with your kids

Our Family Improvers Coaching Sessions are designed to help rookie and intermediate riders of all ages build upon their Fundamentals and give them a toolbox of mountain bike skills that you can apply to any terrain, in any location, and any in conditions. We'll teach you and your kids how to ride tricky, natural singletrack trails in The Surrey Hills, or red routes at trail centres, safely and with skill and confidence.

Following training you will all see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in your confidence on technical trails. You will be able to tackle rougher terrain and trickier corners with greater control and negotiate bigger trail obstacles and moderate drops with confidence and commitment.

Just a belated email to say how much we enjoyed the half day course we had with you at half term. Gary was a very good instructor with the right balance of encouragement without being patronising. We all felt we'd like to do more!

The coach managed to put us all at ease straight away and his style of coaching that was incredibly informative, clear, patient and supportive. I had no idea we could all learn so much so quickly, and he has opened the door to an incredible sport that we can all take part in as a family
