Mountain Bike Coaching



Mountain biking is one of the fastest growing sports in Britain, and is relatively easy and not too costly to get in to. A lot of people think that being in a very flat part of the UK that mountain biking is something that just doesn’t happen here in Cambridgeshire, but they are very wrong. It is an excellent area to ride and learn, although we haven’t got any massive hills, actually gives us an advantage, because we don’t have to be super fit to get out there and start learning.

As Jonathan Collins from 1MTB1 was saying to me from Llandudno in North Wales, “everywhere you look around where I live, there is a massive climb! So it is quite hard for people to start mountain biking unless they are already very fit!”

Our Mountain Bike Coaching sessions are extremely popular and fill up quickly. The Mountain Bike training sessions are put together to help you build confidence in learning the fundamentals of off-road riding so you don't feel as though you have been thrown in at the deep end. Whether on our mountain bike training days or through stand-alone coaching, you will always learn in a safe environment with a fully trained instructor to start you on the path to riding those more technical sections with assured ability.
