All of our Women’s MTB Coaching programs take place on a monthly basis running all season from April-October. We have both weekday evening and weekend sessions to choose from. They consist of four 2.5 hour coaching sessions with one of our experienced female coaches, who you will be able to get in contact with throughout the program. They will also provide you with riding and trail recommendations for you to explore outside of your program sessions. To explore available dates and times please click BOOK NOW.
This is all dependent on where you are on your riding journey, our coaches are experienced in pinpointing exactly where that is so that you can move forward together. They will cover the following skills on a variety of terrain and trail features so that you can progress your riding ability:
Build stability & control on your bike so that you are able to resist forces on the trail, enabling you to react & recover with a greater range of movement.
Gear selection to maintain efficient cadence so you can ride for longer! As well as how to control speed and traction on varied terrain with different braking ratios.
Learn how to plan your lines and achieve that dreamy flow & efficiency through corners and features, a better awareness for upcoming terrain and line choice.
How rotation, leaning and angulation can improve your cornering ability. Learn to ride more smoothly by increasing traction and/or speed by controlling, creating or releasing pressure from the bike.
Did you find that you got on really well with one of our coaches and you are looking to focus on developing a specific skill? Or maybe you already have your riding gang dialled and you are all wanting to progress together. Reach out to us, let's make it happen!
