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 Lidster
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 had a one on one full day session with Steve from Chasing Trails and it was great. Steve is a great instructor, not taking things too fast but moving on with good pace once you've got a skill down, keeping things fresh. Got through a lot in one day: cornering, line choice, drops, jumps, manuals and bunny hops. You might not totally master a skill but you learn the techniques so that you can develop them later by yourself. I can't wait to get out and put my new skills into practice on the trails. Thanks Steve for a fun day.
Throughly enjoyed our day with Steve on a beginners course for mountain biking. I had zero experience with mountain biking before, but Steve was ace and tailored the day to building up some skills and confidence on the bike. We also enjoyed his guided tour of some of the other trails in the forest. Thanks for a great day Steve!
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.
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.
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.
As a novice rider, I booked onto the mountain bike skills course and jumps and drops course. I had a fabulous day in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I have learnt the fundamental skills of mountain biking and my confidence has soared as a result of this. It'll enable me to get the most out of riding in the future. I would recommend these courses for beginners, riders wishing to improve their skills and for those who are in need of a refresher. It's a very big 5 stars for me.
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�
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!
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.
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.
