Introduction to mountain biking at Falkirk: Get started on your journey to real mountain biking in heart of the The Central Belt!

Meeting at Greenrig Cycles at Callendar Estate Mountain Bike Trails near Falkirk. You’ll learn the essential skills for tackling common mountain biking trail features. We’ll introduce you to techniques on how to make yourself ready at all times to tackle the trail ahead of you. As a beginner, or inexperienced off-road rider you’ll learn to position yourself correctly on the bike so as to absorb rough terrain and promote freedom of movement. Also you’ll learn how to stay in control with the confidence to start tackling more technical features. This is a group course with up to 5 other riders. Ridelines instructors are experienced in creating low pressure, inclusive learning environments for all levels of participants. If you have any questions or reservations about this course, please Contact Us.

This course is for the new or lapsed mountain biker that needs to build or re-establish the basics in confident, safe trail riding.

Introduction to mountain biking at Falkirk: What we cover on this course.

Body position.
Safe and effective braking.
Conserving momentum on the trail.
Reading and reacting to the trail ahead.
Rolling over trail obstacles.
Basic cornering techniques.

On this course, we spent time off the main trails looking at positioning you correctly on your bike. We will explain the physics of absorbing trail features in the context of positioning and give you the tools to do it. We’ll also look at how this translates to features you’re likely to come across on blue and red trail networks.

Finally, once you have it nailed, we’ll move on and take you on an enjoyable trail ride to put it all together. In addition we’ll have a full debrief to reflect on your experience, hopefully with coffee & cake at The Canada Wood Cafe.
