Andy Barlow and Rab Wardell from the Dirt School mtb training crew are hitting the road to bring their coaching skills to you.

If you live near to the Forest of Dean, Peaslake or Lee Quarry and fancy getting some riding tips from the pros then hit up the Dirt School.

Hitting the Trail-Dirt School road trip 2012.

We’re taking Dirt School on a summer holiday this August. Stopping at the Forest of Dean on the road south to Peaslake and then Lee Quarry on the way home, we'll be on hand delivering our classic Trail High School and Freeride School classes. Using our tried and tested methods, we’ll give you access to the theories that we’ve developed over the last five years with hundreds of riders and world-class competitors.

Taking a little twist on the basics, we’ll help show you how to really get the most out of your bike and your time on it. That means you’ll not only get help cornering, jumping and riding a host of different trail features, but you’ll also get an insight into how you should think about the trail ahead and simple techniques to boost your confidence and speed. As we design our classes from a rider's perspective expect various levels of trail difficulty - all aiming to mimic what you'll come across on your favourite ride, wherever that is.

Our Peaslake days will be extra special, including demo bikes and support from Santa Cruz Bikes and bike set up advice from Pedal and Spoke.
