Pure Outdoor Mountain Bike


21st September 2024

Mountain Biking Taster Day with Pure Outdoor

Fun and action-packed one day course, an introduction to Mountain Biking in the Peak District


21st September 2024 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

9:30 Arrive at The Adventure Hub

Your instructor will welcome you and outline the objectives for the course over a great cup of Italian coffee or tea. After ensuring everyone has a suitable bike and kit (bike and helmet hire is available) there will be a brief introductory session looking at bike set-up, brake use and riding safety.

10:15 Head to the trails

We will head out onto our local trails which will be chosen on the basis of weather conditions, along with the experience and ambitions of the group. We will either strike out from our centre or drive around 15 minutes to an alternative start point.

10:30 Practical skills session

Once on the trails, expect to cover approximately 15-20km during the day. We'll begin by looking at body position and weight shifting in a variety of terrains whilst climbing, descending and cornering; discovering that freedom of movement on the bike is key to good technique. Your instructor will choose appropriate sections of trail to 'session', allowing you to experiment with different line choices, sight lines and feel the benefit of improved technique with multiple attempts at certain trail obstacles. We'll then put it all into practice by tackling some classic Peak District trails. There will be loads of opportunities to chat about where to ride, equipment and suitable bikes.

16:30 Back to The Adventure Hub

At the end of the day we'll return to The Adventure Hub for refreshments and to review the day's key points and progression targets for the future.

£95 per person
