Terms & Conditions


Sessions are non-refundable but are always transferable if Dirt School Limited is notified more than 14 days prior to the booked date. Bookings are not transferable within the 14 day period before the session/class, however, special cases are always considered and Dirt School Limited will endeavour to provide the best service possible. Bookings are not transferable within the seven day period before your booked date. 

On rare occasions courses may be cancelled by Dirt School Limited if there are two or under clients booked. Should this occur, transfer to another course date or a full refund will be offered by Dirt School Limited.

Equipment and Riding

Food and water is not provided by Dirt School Limited. Each rider is expected to carry suitable food and hydration provisions for the duration of their course. Even though we will spend more time sessioning sections of trail than pedalling around the hills, we find our courses can still be tiring and plenty of food and water goes a long way to staying energised.

It's compulsory to wear a certified cycling helmet throughout any Dirt School Limited course or ride out. Additional body armour including eye-wear, gloves and knee pads are strongly recommended. Waterproof clothing is also strongly recommended, the weather is changeable so please pack for all eventualities.

The bike you use for your course with us should be in good working order with bar end plugs fitted. Dirt School Limited reserves the right to cancel the session without a refund should the Dirt School Limited representative deem the rider’s bike unsafe for use.


Mountain Biking is a dangerous sport and as such carries risk which could result in personal injury or death. Dirt School Limited will endeavour to teach in safe areas and on suitable terrain however, the customer/ rider accepts that risk of serious injury is a part of mountain biking and has the option to withdraw from any activity at any point should they feel uncertain about proceeding.

Should the weather or ground conditions be deemed unsafe by the Dirt School Limited representative, an alternative date/ session will be offered to suit the customer. Dirt School Limited will make decisions on weather as early as possible, however this may be on the morning of the course or during a session.

Dirt School Limited reserves the right to stop any session without a refund should the Dirt School Limited representative deem the rider either dangerously unprepared or to have provided inaccurate information regarding their riding experience causing danger to themselves and others.

Should a session be cancelled or cut short due to weather conditions, an alternative date will be arranged at no extra cost to cover missed ground.
