Improver mountain bike lessons and coaching

An improver is anyone who is looking to improve the skills they already have. Over the course of your mountain biking it is common to reach a point where you can't improve any more. I.e. You can't work out how to get faster, how to be smoother, how to make the jump from a blue route to the red or red to black. If you have lost confidence, then this is also the course for you.

What to expect:

  • Fun
  • Learning at your pace
  • We will only look at skills and ride things that you are happy with
  • Answer all your questions
  • Boost to confidence

Techniques we can look at:

  • Bike set up
  • Reading the trail
  • Body position
  • Braking
  • Manuals
  • Front wheel lift
  • Drop offs
  • Berms
  • Pumping the trail
  • Line Choice
  • Roots

The improvers course can be booked as 1 to 1 tuition or if you know other people who would want to come, book them on at the time of booking your course. We only offer private tuition i.e. you know everyone who is taking part. We can take up to 6 people.

This course can be run at either:

    • Mabie – Perfect for those wanting to work on drop offs and berms.
    • Dalbeattie – The home of rocks and line choice.
    • Kirroughtree – Good for bike skills and getting flow on the bike.
