A two hour taster session for people who are confident on trail centre reds and blacks and are relatively new to natural trails.
The course will help riders to build a foundation of skills helping them gain confidence and stability whilst on natural trails.
Skills are broken down and practiced in a safe area, then we hit the trails and practice them for real! Riders should come away with lots of tips and tricks to take away with them to practice and develop what they’ve learned. Places are limited!
*Participants will need a mountain bike in perfect working order with disk brakes*! Spaces can be booked through Eventbrite here.
