    A lovely friendly, fun session, fully as anticipated and stated. Covered the basics on bike set up and safety, then ready position, future scanning and weight shifting, with some extra focus on groups specific requests and needs. I definitely feel more confident about tackling the trail and more aware of what I need to focus on and work on to enjoy riding even more! I can’t wait for the next session Flow…I would highly recommend. Cheers Windy.
    P.S. Make sure you take plenty of water and possibly a high energy snack, 3 hours in this weather, even without a particularly strenuous ride, needs it. Enjoy.

    Rachel, the instuctor, was very professional throughout. Started with safety and basics then worked up to one dot downhill – didn’t expect that! She was really keen to give advice on bike set-up and our particular skill requirements. Some of us did the Verderer’s afterwards to put in practice what we had learnt and I had another go at the downhill, as well. Very pleased :
