We went and did a mechanics course yesterday with Steve and it was brilliant. We have some very basic knowledge, but lacked confidence in fixing our bikes and would always take them to the shop. We sent Steve a list of things we wanted to cover... before the course and he was very good at responding to questions/emails before the course.On the day he provided food and clearly explained and went through everything with us. Really enjoyed the day, feel much more confident in tackling issues with my bike. Well worth going if you want to learn how to sort your bike out and save money on bike shops costs. Obviously bikes shops are great for more complex tasks, especially if you have a carbon bike. Thanks Steve. Highly recommendread more
Recently had some coaching from Steve with a couple of mates.As we were a small group and simile standard of rider, we managed to get through quite a lot in the day.Steve helped us in the areas we asked for help and I feel much more confident on... rocks and drops, helping me to be smoother and more in control.I managed to do certain features I’ve never attempted before.I look forward to using the skills out on the trail and building on themread more
Took my bike for a service this week, only just managed a ride this morning and it runs perfect. Still a bit of chain rub on the front derailleur but to be fair that’s probably down to my chain set being slightly warped. Nice, knowledgable guy that... knows his stuff. Will definitely be going back for my next service.read more
Big thank you to Steve from Chasing Trails after a 1-1 day coaching in Dalby Forest money well spent I learnt a lot of new skills and shown how to tackle all the different obstacles from corners to drop offs without coming off ! Highly recommended ... especially if you have a spare day in lock down 👍read more
Just finished an afternoon of trail skills with Steve. The group had a mix of abilities from relatively experienced riders to novices but Steve managed to pitch it really well for all. I've been riding for quite a few years but took on some great... tips that had an immediate impact on my riding.Was a great value, very worthwhile course. Thanks Steve!Rich.read more
Spent the day with Steve yesterday at Dalby Forest learning the fundamentals of Mountain Biking. I'd never been any further off road than my local canal towpath before yesterday but by the end of the day I was happily riding the various features of... the sections of red route we were doing. Steve communicates the techniques well and provides great feedback and encouragement throughout the day. Steve provided great value for money and an enjoyable dayread more
I would definitely recommend a skills session. Steve explained everything really clearly and didn't bombard me with things to think about. I feel much more able now and it was a real confidence booster after a nasty accident. I'm looking to do the... guided route or more advanced techniques next time!read more
I've been riding MTB's (racing them too) since 1989. Yesterday Steve tought me how to ride it properly. Steve is knowledgable, patient, is an excellent coach and we look forward to our next session with him
Good day with Steve getting back to basics. Don’t think I’ve ever had a day of sessioning basics over and over with somebody giving constructive advice, surprisingly difficult after years of building up bad habits. Have gone away with lots to focus... on and practice.read more
Just had a brilliant day with Steve from Chasing Trails. His tuition was great, not just what to do on the bike but why too. Home now muddy and tired but worth it for a fantastic day - always a good sign when the shower has a silt left after 🙂... Definitely recommend Chasing Trails for improving your riding!read more
I had a fabulous day with Steve last week, learned so much from it I’ll take months to process it all.He’s a great teacher, taking things at a pace where I could feel confident in one essential skill before moving on.I learned the basics of speed... control, negotiating drop offs, berms, rocks, bunny hops etc and though I didn’t master them it gave me the knowledge and confidence to practice on my own.Next time out i rode 9 miles of Dalbys reds with my brother in law, I could never have done that confidently beforehand.Whatever level you’re at I’m absolutely sure a day with Steve is money well spent!Simon Lidsterread more
Brilliant! My son had a one to one mountain biking day with Steve. He came back absolutely buzzing. He said that Steve was lovely, he'd learnt loads and thoroughly enjoyed the day. We will definitely plan a return trip in to next years holiday.
Super day of 1-1 coaching. Learnt how to ride properly and now need to practice and build on all this good stuff. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a better set of core skills from which to develop their bike handling 🙂
I treated myself and my 14 year old son to a skills day with Steve from chasing trails , the day was really great , good fun ,and we both came away with new skills, we can't wait to get back on the trails and put what we learnt to practice . Steve... is a brillant instructor , very well experienced and once you have nailed it he moves on ,so you really get a good day and value for money.read more
I have just returning from a full day course and I must say that Steve is a coaching wizard! Jumps, drop offs, manuals and bunny hops all nailed in one day!Well the basics at least. But I know have the skills shown to me by Steve to go out and hit... bigger jumps and obstacles fast and with more confidence. Cheers Steve, top day. Well worth every penny.read more
I've been riding MTB for about 20 years and felt I just needed a bit of help to shake of a few bad habits/techniques I'd picked up over the years.I went on a Jumps and Drops course in late August and since then I've been practising what we went... through and can safely say it's made a massive difference to my speed and enjoyment of riding, particularly over drops and downhill generally.I rode the Marin trail and both loops at Penmachno last weekend and was able to put into full use the techniques Steve taught me.Steve is an excellent teacher who imparts his knowledge and experience in a very effective and patient way.I'll certainly be returning in the not too distant future.read more
As well as the coaching Steve is very knowledgeable regarding bike repair and maintenance. With 24 hours notice he has replaced the rim that I damaged and rebuilt my wheel to get me back out on the trails. I would definitely recommend his services... top job Steve cheers�read more
Spent a great day on a women's foundation course yesterday. Steve was a very patient guy and explained things very clearly. There is nothing he doesn't know about mountain biking, both theory and practice, and he knows the Daulby trails like the... back of his hand! As a novice I personally found some elements challenging but this was more down to my level of fitness rather than the course content. I now feel more confident on my bike and would definitely recommend the course to others wanting to gain good fundamental mountain biking skills. Thanks Steve!read more
A fabulous day's coaching at Dalby with Steve who not only got the kids and me jumping in a jolly way but also managed to turn Mrs T into a down-hiller with aptitude! All done in a quiet common-sense way that made learning as easy as turning a... pedal. We're all just itching to put everything we've picked up into practice.read more
What an amazing day of coaching! Steve is very patient and very good at explaining technique, and has really made me rethink how I ride. I definately recommend his 1:1 coaching.The course has made me feel really positive about riding again. Can't... wait to get back on my bike.read more
Our good friend @ChasingTrails has become a key part of MTBMeetup over the years. He runs a Jumps & Drops course completely free and year on year we receive nothing but positive feedback. If you're looking for skills training, speak to @ChasingTrails about his range of courses. https://t.co/dK76KOo7VE
