Flow MTB are pleased to announce we will be sponsoring the women’s specific mountain bike courses run by MTB Instruction again for 2017.  Their skills courses are available for all levels of rider from beginners right through to advanced riders who want to push their skills to the next level, and for this year they’re also offering their Alpine prep course too.

The courses proved really popular last year and we received lots of positive feedback from the ladies who attended these courses.  We spoke to Mark at MTB Instruction about what his women’s specific courses offer.

We meet lots of women who are happy to venture off road but become uncomfortable when things become steep, technical or gnarly. We’ll teach you the physical skills required in controlling your bike in any situation and you’ll also learn how to think about your riding. By the end of the course you’ll be feeling confident on your bike and gain the ability to ride your bike and not just be a passenger on it.

2017 course dates are below. All courses cost £70 per person. To make a booking or for more information please email info@mtbinstruction.co.uk

Testament to this is the feedback we get, and riders returning not only for more technical coaching enhancements but joining us on our many global adventures.

 

There are a lot of sensations and feel within mountain biking and when they are all in sync with your skill set you flow is enhanced and your enjoyment out on the trails is too, feeling fluid with flow = speed! “Speed is your friend” after all! So adding trail techniques into your ride like pumping, pre-jumping, drift, manuals, riding light, risk assessment, line choice, gaps, table tops, drop off’s, being loose on your bike, slow in – fast out, will enhance your ride portfolio.
