This is not a beginners course, but skills are taught progressively so even if you are a new mountain biker with limited off-road experience, what you learn will improve your confidence to move on to more advanced skills. If there is an obstacle you are not comfortable with or do not understand, skip it.

Hi Coaches Ian and K, thanks for giving me some idea of what I should be able to do with my bike, and for showing me how to ride it. Excellent tips on suspension, I feel like I got a whole different bike and am now confident riding what I previously would not have even considered rideable… at least not at this pace. The small group was excellent, and I got all the attention that I needed. Hope to ride with you guys again soon. My friends will want to sign up once they see me ride now!
