    Decided to give this course a go to help me get back into mountain biking. As an instructor Dave had a really reassuring style. He was able to make it feel relaxed whilst still pushing you. I felt so much more confident afterwards. Course obviously has a structure but has flexibility to look at any other areas that might be relevant which I found really beneficial.
    Without a doubt I shall attend a logical progression course once the skills learned here have been embedded.
    I cant recommend these guys enough!

    This course was fantastic for building my confidence. I started the day quite nervous, i couldnt carry any speed around corners or over roots, but Joe was brilliant, he explained the techniques really well, and at the end of the day i could do little drops. My speed and technique have improved loads by practicing what i learned. Awesome day and a great group..Thanks Joe i’ve booked FOD flow 2 already.
