About Us

Riders coaching riders

We love to ride and want you to feel the same. Whether we are on the family trial or racing downhill our love for riding shines through in our coaching.

We coach, we ride, we race. Our coaches bring 15+ years of professional riding experience at National and World Cup levels and are certified as MTB coaches and guides with CTC and MBC UK. We believe hands-on experience counts for everything. 

We aim to develop your skills and build your confidence in a fun, safe and relaxed environment. Whether you are new to mountain biking looking to gain basic skills, a veteran rider who’s lost the love, or a competitive rider looking to gain valuable seconds, we’ve been there. Nerves, plateaus, frustrations, a loss of confidence, we understand how it feels and how to overcome it.

The Coaches

“Sharing my knowledge with others and watching the moment where everything clicks together is exactly the reason I love coaching. When you can noticeably see a riders speed and technique improve in just a couple of hours I go away buzzing just as much as the rider does!”
