Steep & Technical 2 Day Course
£150 per person for 2 days (minimum 3 people) (Accommodation not included)
Learning to ride steep and technical terrain requires a different set of riding skills to ride confidently and in control compared to the bike park or trail riding many riders do day in day out. Body position, braking, line choice are just some of the aspects we cover of the course to make you a more rounded rider. Some skills are immediately transferable from the trail others will need to be adapted or learnt from scratch.
Day 1 is the same course as our Steep And Technical 1 day course with an additional day with the same coach and guide from day one who will take you out on the best trails the Peak District National Park has to offer. This will enable you to implement the skills learnt from day one of the course before heading out on your local trails.
Bike Set Up
We will review the full set up of your bike including suspension front and rear if you have both.
These areareas of the trail where you can perform an action and its key to be able to spot these.
Berms and flat corners will be looked at individually with different techniques used
Braking in the right way is key as is braking in the right places on the trail
Placing the front wheel in the correct spot on the trail is crucial on steep terrain.
Using the rear wheel to steer the bike on tight and technical terrain helps with corners.
Dont be a sheep and follow the same line! We will explore line choice, the why and when.
Learn how to descend steeper terrain with flow and control and an increased confidence
Day 2 will set off from your start point by 10am and you will cover between 20-30 kilometres on some of the most awesome trails in the Peak District National Park. The trails we use are carefully chosen to allow you to practice the skills learnt from day one and there will be plenty of time for sessioning spots and asking questions to the coach and guide.
If you have any questions regarding the skills course or wish to make sure this course is suitable for your current riding level please contact us before booking.
