bike skills coachingMountain bike coaching is now widely excepted as being one of the best value for money 'upgrades' you can buy. Coaching can help you develop new skills and techniques allowing you to ride faster, smoother and with more confidence than ever before. As one of the UK's longest established coaching providers we have a wealth of experience and knowledge which combined with our unique facilities, means that no matter what level you're at, we can help you to progress. We have an in-depth comprehension of how you think and physically behave, therefore understanding why you react to things the way you do. We'll use this knowledge to help you become the rider you want to be.

Take a look at our coaching page and see what we can do for you. BONUS - we don't charge you any extra for one to one tuition.

guided rides and tripsThere's more to mountain biking than just riding the trail centres but finding the good stuff can be a time consuming and often frustrating experience. We can take away all the frustration with our guided rides which offer limitless opportunities to explore this beautiful, wild area of Wales. Whether you want to put the 'mountain' back into your biking with a true Welsh epic or explore the hills and valleys with something a little gentler, we can help. Have a look at the Guiding and Trips page, you never know where it might lead.

For those looking for something a little different or a bit more adventurous, we offer overnight and multi-day bikepacking trips right into the heart of the mountains. Your bivvy kit is all part of the deal, you just need to bring a sleeping bag and a sense of adventure.

The Winter months can be fantastic for mountain biking but there's a few things you might want to consider first:

• Wash and re-proof your jacket
• Invest in waterproof socks
• Bar pogies look weird but work brilliantly

• Change your front tyre for something more suited to the forthcoming mud
• Drop your tyre pressures a few psi on those frosty morning rides
• Check your sidewalls regulary for cuts and nicks

• Add a spare warm layer to your backpack
• Re-stock your packs emergency spares
• Check your multi-tool and pump work properly

• Switch to a 'wet' lube
• Degrease and re-lube your drivetrain after every ride
• Keep your suspension as clean as possible
