Black MTB Session – Looking to learn the most technical skills? Want to ride the most challenging trails on our island? Then this session could be just what your looking for! Using technical practices and challenges we’ll allow your child to establish their decision making and risk management strategies whilst in an relaxed outdoor environment. As a group, we’ll ride the mtb trails, rehearse riding scenarios so that they are prepared to be the next generation of mountain bike riders! And hopefully a lifelong love of riding outdoors getting covered in mud! Black – Advanced session’s are aimed at riders who ideally:
- Can ride narrow single track trails containing roots, rock gardens with a mix of gradients.
- Can ride almost any trail feature including rutted trails and steep and technical climbs and descents.
- Prepared to ride in almost any weather conditions. for a prolonged period of time.
- Understand how to brake and carry momentum in difficult conditions.
- Negotiating the most advanced trail features such as drop off’s and jumps that are not rollable.
- Riding almost anywhere and anything!
