Mountain Bike Training

Matt Simmonds Mountain Bike Training Days are for people of all riding levels that are interested in gaining one-on-one or group training and advice. Whether it is Cross Country / general trail riding or Downhill Mountain Biking, I cater for all. Improve your riding skills, have you found riding a struggle or sometimes even fearful of obstacles in your way? Learning to ride your bike properly, will take away any fear you may have so you can enjoy your rides to the full.

Surely riding a bike is as easy as… well – riding a bike? It is but, if you want to enjoy riding, ride new terrain, a different discipline or generally ride better. I can help!

SKILL LEVEL
I would advise all riders whether you are a first time rider, recreational or at a high level of competition, to dedicate time to improving your skills.Training days are the best way to do this.

My training days, will help you with:
Techniques to over come obstacles
Confidence – Commitment – Concentration – Control
Body work – Foot position – Energy Management – Speed control
Safety
Correct bike set up
Race preparation

Above all, I will make it fun to ride your bike. I would not expect you to do anything you don’t want but I will push your bounderies which in turn will give you greater abilities. I offer Training Days for beginners wanting to gain basic riding skills and increase their confidence to ride smoother faster and safer to get the best out of your rides.
