Thursdays - MTB Skills Course
Whilst all our other tours require previous mountain biking experience, Thursday is perfect also for complete beginners.
Because on Thursdays we don't take you on a regular tour, but offer you a MOUNTAIN BIKE SKILLS COURSE for beginners and intermediates.
This gives you the opportunity to learn the basics and core skills of mountain biking.
This skills course is ideal for everyone, wanting to get a taste of mountain biking and for everyone wanting to learn from scratch!
The course is perfect for the complete novice or those who wish to progress their riding.
In addition, a skills course is perfect for bikers, who have had some accidents and earned some "respect", they would like to get rid of.
However, it is also helpful for experienced bikers, who have never really had the opportunity to take part in a SKILLS COURSE or a mountainbike instruction. We aim to enable the participant to ride more technically demanding terrain in a safer/more controlled manner.
In our training course you will learn:
- Rider positioning on a mountain bike
- Balance techniques and trackstand
- Line choice for obstacles
- Correct application of the brakes
- Braking to a halt
- Biking down steps
- Handling steep, rocky terrain
- Power assisted front wheel lifts
- Rear wheel lift
- Ascents in technical terrain
- Technique in sharp turns and horeshoe bends
All course content is taught practically and imparted through exercises on your bikes. To apply what you learned, we will go on a small tour during and after the training, aimed to reinforce your new skills by biking more technical terrain than before.
Price: € 88 plus rental full-suspension bike.
