Mountain bike courses

Mountain bike skills coursesmountain bike courses - learning MTB skills at Dalby Forest

MTB skills courses have always been the most popular service we offer, especially the 1:1 & 1:2 days. Courses are run to the rider’s needs & this is a big part of the continuing positive reviews. Since the 2012 Tour de France & the Olympics a lot more people have discovered cycling in general & mountain biking continues to be a huge part of the sport, for obvious reasons..!

Check the group page for dates or get in touch for 1 to 1 availability. Skills courses & coaching are run at Dalby Forest’s world class trails

Mountain bike maintenance courses

A maintenance course will give you the confidence to service your bike without the fear of ending up with a floor full of random parts! It’s wise to have the knowledge to avoid a long walk home! You can often do a fix at the trailside or if necessary a slight bodge to get you back to civilisation…

Wheel building tuition

If wheel building seems a dark art, book a day to learn the process from start to finish. Wheel building courses are run on a 1 to 1 basis as this gives time to get a feel for the skill as well as the technical details & emerge with a great new set of wheels should you need them!

The North York Moors have over 500 miles of trails open to mountain biking. Why not discover some of the best ones with a guided day? In the last year riders from Australia & Colorado have been impressed with North Yorkshire’s trails! The scenery is as good as the biking & there’s often the chance of a pub lunch

There are trails suitable for all abilities & fitness levels, just get in touch to arrange a day to suit. You just need a bike & helmet – great riding will be provided! The wide open space of the Moors does seem to refresh deep down…

Mountain bike holidays

We also run MTB skills weekends at Dalbeattie & Kirroughtree trails in Southern Scotland for riders wanting to combine a break with learning some new skills on great trails. We run at least 1 mountain bike coast to coast each year. If you fancy a MTB holiday anywhere in particular & you need a coach or guide just contact us
