MTB weekend 1

After the success of the last 2 yers of running thee courses, Dale house barn is teaming up again with the fabulous Liz Peacock of MTB trail skills to offer another improvers intermediate skills weekend here in the Forest of Bowland, using the trails in Gisburn forest and also the natural terrain of the Yorkshire dales. This weekend will be perfect for those riders that can “manage” a red grade trail but wish to “start owning them in style!”

We will be using some of the trails from last year’s Women’s Hope tech enduro for those who wish to practise their skills or improve their speed for this year’s race.

Day one will be a skills improvement day which will include:

  • Looking ahead and reading the trail
  • Developing techniques for different types of corners
  • Line choice to improve flow
  • Body position for riding more advanced trail features
  • Effective use of gears and brakes for maximising momentum whilst maintaining control
  • Riding roots and rocks with confidence
  • Front and rear wheel lifts
  • Technical climbing, step ups
  • Pumping the bike for better speed and control

Numbers will be limited to 8 females to ensure the best out of the coaching sessions for everyone.

Day two will be a lead ride in the Yorkshire dales with Liz and 2 other ride leaders to consolidate the skills learned in day one and to enjoy the stunning scenery and varied riding terrain in the area.
