Course Feedback

Did the Trail Craft skills course. The instruction was excellent and I learnt loads despite being a seasoned rider. I cannot recommend them highly enough.


Awesome day on the Trail Craft course! Janey was a great coach and really took the time to explain and demonstrate how to do everything. From previously always using a BMX to swapping to the MTB I had lots of bad habits, but Janey quickly spotted and sorted them for me! Highly recommend this course for anyone, even previous riders with bad habits.

Join our new Finding Flow course at Innerleithen, starting out on the red graded trails, teaching you how to link smooth sections of trail together and float through rough sections, before progressing onto natural terrain. A great introduction to slightly more technical riding, enabling you to spot grip points and identify safe braking zones, taking your skillset to the next level.
