Why choose Dirt School?

The founders of BASE College and at the front edge of mountain bike technique for over a decade, Dirt School is the place to go for mountain bike lessons in the UK.

Tweed Valley Bikes

The little shop at the foot of some of the world’s best trails. Born from our operations on the trail and a desire to stock what we believe are the very best products on the market, all tried and tested by our team, we opened our shop with one thing in mind, the riding experience. 

Covering everything from coaching and guiding, to our professional workshop and high end suspension servicing and tuning centre, our drive to deliver the best experience, whether that’s on the trails or in our shop, runs through everything we do.


"Andy is an exceptionally talented coach and manages to get the best out of people in an encouraging and informative way. He takes a holistic approach to the rider in addition to focussing on individual areas. Superb value for money, couldn't recommend more highly."

Harry, Private Session

“I had a brilliant day's training with Gregor, learning about bike position, berms and the best lines at Glentress. The highest compliment I can pay Dirt School is that on my next outing my son said, "You've got a lot better." Thanks again!”

Stuart, Trail Craft

"I would just like to thank Andy and the team for the last three sessions. Watching from the sidelines as the kids progress through the winter months has been a real eye opener. If you want your kids to progress get them signed up to one of the many courses Dirt school offer, you won’t be disappointed! Thank you!"

Alan, Kids Private Sessions
