Within a 2 hour session we make a real difference to a riders abilities, safety and forward progression whether they are a beginner or a more experienced rider. When we are taught to ride a bike we miss out on some fundamental core skills that make a huge difference, we therefore break things right down and then start to rebuild our riders so that the skills we introduce become instinctive and are used every time they ride which will enhance the abilities whilst making them safer while out on the trials. We specialise in working with young riders but also have had great success with adult riders by taking them through the same program, it  is often something that a family choose to do and enjoy together.
