The aim of the Jumps and drops – Part 1 coaching session is to give you the confidence on more progressive mountain bike trail features.   We spend time focusing on table top jumps, step downs and other more advanced trail features which are generally found on Red trails as well as  1 dot and 2 dot downhill trails.

A half day’s coaching designed to give you, the rider, an insight into riding more technical terrain found at the Pedalabikeaway trail centre.  Each section will be carefully broken down, before putting it all together.

This course will include small learning groups, two full coaching sessions and video analysis.  This analysis will be reviewed throughout the morning for immediate feedback.

Jumps and drops – Part 1 is the fourth step of our comprehensive coaching pathway.  A progressive structure for you to develop from a complete beginner to exhibiting hardcore skills on your mountain bike!  Already been on this course?  Then have a look at the course ‘Jumps and Drops Part 2’ to further develop your mountain biking skills.

This is an adults (18+)  course, however 16-18 year olds can attend if there is an adult accompanying them on the course.

    After a couple of years of trail centre riding, I had plateaued.  I booked a 1-1 with Joe, a fantastic coach who completely transformed my control and flow.  Now it was time to learn to jump properly as my attempts were interesting to say the least… Logical Progression sounded ideal and learning in a group would also be a fun day out.  Windy was another brilliant coach and he tailored the course to everyone’s level and desires. After covering pumping on the pump track, we moved to manuals and then sessioned a nice, easy table before moving to the red route tables which I had always found daunting, but I now had the confidence to try them. Windy analysed us with video and fixed our technique, timing and also bike setup.  We then moved to the drops in the skills area with more video analysis and as we were doing well, we moved to a trail with slightly bigger drops. A bit intimidating at first sight, but we did them! I have progressed hugely in so little time with the Wye MTB coaches and they are they nicest guys you could hope to meet.  I still have things to work on, and have been practicing and am continuing to improve faster than ever. When you are progressing, coaching the best value upgrade you can buy; plus you get lunch too! Highly recommended.

    Booked logical progression for my wife and I with Coach Windy, to continue what has been covered in previous sessions we have had with him.

    The amount of progress you make in three hours is staggering, and largely its tweaking techniques to improve position on the bike and being more trail aware.

    Well worth booking if you want to sharpen up core techniques.
