Core Skills Lesson

This course is for those looking to improve all aspects of their riding. Our core skills lesson builds on the basic skills you have learned on previous courses, or indeed over time yourself. We recommend having a minimum of 3 months mountain bike experience before attending, this way you'll be sure to get the most out of the session. All participants should have their own bike, rental is not an option for this lesson.
