Adult Course

Whether you have just discovered mountain biking or have been riding a while and want to consolidate those fundamental skills, this is the course for you. We will iron out any bad habits and create a solid skill base from which you can then progress.

Throughout this course you will receive expert coaching from the team at Comrie Croft Bikes in a fun and challenging environment. Our experienced coaches ensure that each level of rider can progress and challenge within their own ability.

COURSE OUTLINE

The foundation of a great rider begins with mastering the core riding skills:

  • Body position – for balance while descending and climbing.
  • Changing gear efficiently and correctly.
  • Cornering – line choice, maintaining traction, body position & braking.
  • How to control speed and direction.
  • How to tackle tricky trail features such as roots and rocks safely.
  • How to tackle small drops in the trail.
  • Front wheel lifts for tackling small obstacles.

The course will be split between our skills park, where you will practice specific skills, and our trails, where you will put your newly found skills into practice. 

By the end of the day, you will be equipped with the skills and techniques to head out onto the trails with confidence, find your flow and have some fun!
