SCHOOL OF MOUNTAIN BIKING - TRAIL CLASS
Want to improve your skills and be a better rider?
Ok, we know the answer to that one, of course you do. Whether you just want to learn how to ride on single track or you are keen to get your Enduro on, then we can help you. The great thing about this being a private session is that you can be a complete beginner looking to gain confidence, or a burgeoning professional wanting to shave time off your favourite Strava runs - we can customise the session to suit.
Where will we ride?
Where else but the world famous Whakarewarewa Forest Mountain Bike Park, otherwise known as the Redwoods or Mecca!
How does it work?
Simple. Send us an email from the form below. We'll work together to make a date that works best for you. You meet us at our base at Mountain Bike Rotorua, Waipa Mountain Bike Carpark. We ride with you and look at what skills we should work on.
We take one on one lessons (or two on one if both riders are the same skill level, this is a must though) taking you, the rider, through a few different tracks to get an undesrtanding of your ability. These 2 hour, low ratio sessions allow you the time you need to be able to get as much as possible out of the Trail Class. Any longer and you run the risk of getting the dreaded "brain fry"! The feeling of information overload where you start to go backwards in learning pretty quickly.
So I'll be a World Champion afterwards??
Our staff are good, really good. They'll present and teach skills to improve your riding, make you faster and/or make it more enjoyable. Becoming a world champion is possible but not the intention of these two hour sessions. If you are interested in professional coaching programmes we can provide this. Just ask us and we can get the information to you.
$250 for a "one on one" session OR $200pp for a "two on one" with our crew. This is a two hour session (allow 2.5 hours for meets and greets) with one of our professional staff. Longer and/or repeat sessions are available. Repeat clients qualify for a discount.
Please note that two on one sessions MUST have riders at the same ability level.
If you are interested in group skills sessions and/or weekend getaway skills packages then simply email to start the conversation.
Anything else I need?
Yup, you need;
a great attitude
the willingness to learn
any level of experience
a quality bike (email us as we can arrange bike hire too)
safety gear (helmet is a must, gloves are ideal, knee and elbow pads are optional
but a pretty good idea, full face helmet and neck brace aren't necessary but can be arranged)
