Mountain Bike Course
Our female friendly course is basically the same as the course for the guys, but without the guys…
A chance to relax and enjoy the day in a female only coached session. That certainly doesn’t mean we will be discussing knitting patterns and cake recipes though, as we coach the same techniques, with the same equipment, using the same style bikes. The techniques for getting up the hill and down safely is the same for men and women, so no changes there.
Each group is limited to four like-minded female riders to one Instructor (or we also offer a one-to-one training session) Our Instructors work at your pace and our session is bespoke to the ability of the group members.
If you have any questions at all on the day, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are happy to advise on everything from what tools to carry, to the best local routes to try out.
