With just over a month to go a lot of the courses are filling up (some have even sold out!) and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on that course you have been thinking about over the last few months.
It doesn't matter what level you're at! Improve your photography skills with the help of Benji Haworth as he guides you round a ride and brings out the best in your mountain bike specific photography. If you are totally new to the sport and are wanting to learn essential mountain bike skills, or experienced and simply wanting to learn new tricks, then why not sign up to a session with highly experienced instructors Campbell Coaching? They will teach you all the tricks in the controlled environment of the Thornbridge pump track. You can check out the benefits here of using a pump track.
Then why not put all those newly learnt skills into practice by joining the one and only Ed Oxley on one of his guided 'smoother 'rides. Sign up here. By the end of the weekend you'll be whizzing along the trails! You can check out his guiding credentials on his own Great Rock website .
There are spaces still available on the Inside Out courses. Learn how to transfer skills gained on the indoor walls to the great outdoors and of course we're going to get some great whether this autumn to make the most of it... aren't we??. There are a whole new set of skills and things to think about, so whether it's bouldering or leading you're interested in then these will be ideal courses to set you on your way. sign up here for the Inside Out - Leading, or Inside Out - Bouldering
Want something more family focused? Then the Rock and Ropes ‘rocktivity’ course is designed as an introduction to exploring and climbing on gritstone edges, and is deal for families and young children with no previous experience of climbing.
If you've already done a bit but want to learn new rope skills, then the Climbing Escapology course will run through advanced rope systems. So avoid bad rope management and know what to do, or have the confidence that your mate knows what to do, when things go wrong.
