This one-day course is ideal for intermediate mountain bike riders. Participants will practice the key skills in trail riding including: optimum use of gears and brakes, building confidence on corners and rocky terrain and steep slopes, and all the tricks to stay on the bike while the terrain gets tough.
The course is a workshop-oriented day where participants will practice skills on natural terrain and a circuit of man-made obstacles. The course will also provide an overview of bike fit, safety, equipment options, and accessible trails to practice in Wadi Degla. Participants must already know how to ride a bike comfortably on roads and have at least a basic level of fitness. At the end of the course beginners will have the foundation to expand their skills and intermediate riders will pick up a few new tricks to safely ride more challenging terrain.
