SofA-Mountain biking skills for beginners


24 hours

A day of Mountain biking skills in the Peak District.        


Come along to Alpkit Hathersage for a day of MTB skills with Pure Outdoor. On Sunday 25th June, we will be covering a variety of fundamental skills to improve your riding.

Starting at 10:00, there will be a full briefing for the day ahead, and will aim to finish at 16:00. The store will be open from 09:30, so please feel free to arrive early for a brew and chat.

During the course, you will look at some key skills like positioning on the bike, braking, cornering, descending and ascending. These skills will then be applied into the trails, such as looking at techniques of how to approach and execute rougher sections of the trails.

This course is aimed at beginners. Riders must be confident with riding a bike and are happy to be out in the saddle for up to 6 hours.
