Our Women’s Trail Craft course future proofs your riding by focusing on the core principles behind all modern mountain bike techniques. Taking you to blue and red graded trails, we’ll focus on riding in a solid body position and how to use your range of motion to your advantage on drops and other trail features, including berms and flat corners typical on blue and red graded trails. Learn how to use your legs to find grip, balance and speed on the trail and open up your riding to more dynamic body movement with front wheel lifts. The perfect course for those who haven’t been coached before, or simply want to build their confidence on the trails in a group of likeminded female riders.
I really enjoyed the last course that I did back in July with Fi. Lovely manner, had a way of quietly inspiring confidence, and the whole lesson was very well progressed. I know you and your team will have put a lot of thought into these lessons as the way it was delivered worked extremely well. All the technical skills coached have helped me progress this last month and truly made my summer!
I had a great day on the women's Trail Craft course last weekend and Janey was an excellent coach. She explains things really well and her method of teaching: with explanations, demonstrations, practice and videoing was very clear. I already feel loads more confident and have taken a lot away from it. The 'speed comes from confidence comes from control' maxim has really stuck in my head. Lots to practise first, but look forward to doing the Finding Flow course next year. Highly recommend it. Thanks again.
