Skills N Thrills


This full-day course is aimed at riders who are either fairly new to Mountain Biking and have already “given it a go” or those wanting to enhance their basic riding technique.  This course uses carefully selected terrain and includes riding on the famous “Follow the Dog” and “Monkey Trail” at Cannock Chase. After completion, participants will have gained the techniques to ride tackle red and some black graded trails along with difficult “Wild” terrain such as the Peak District.

It is strongly advised that participants have experienced some aspects of Off-Road riding before attending and be able to spend a full day out in the saddle.
