    Worth every penny. Learning the basics has made a massive difference.

  2. Alice

    5/5 !! Huge progression in just three hours through getting back to basics… focus on positioning, braking, lines… in order to go faster and progress towards more technical trails. All in a relaxed, fun environment. Highly recommend for all levels of riders.
