Group Lessons

Private Group Lessons (includes an optional bike set-up)

4 - 5 hours duration (start time usually 9am)

€130 p/person (incl Single uplift cost)

If you have a group of friends all interested in upskilling, arrange a time to do a Private lesson together.

A Group Lesson is comprised of breaking down "riding a Mountainbike" to the foundation, learning about weight distribution, what makes grip/traction, how to make the bike "seesaw" effortlessly over obstacles, the reasons why common mistakes occur, which brake to use, how to corner and pump correctly and then we put it all back together again.

Along the way we will discover the particular individual habits that each rider has, and Gabby will give clear and simple solutions to overcome the habits and change them permanently.

We start out in the open on a gravel road to break down and understand what and where control is, then we move to easy tracks sessioning sections to hone technique then later apply it to suitable tracks.

What to expect from a lesson:

The coaching session offers premium Technical Skills Training taking the rider through bike set-up, bike positioning, braking, cornering, steep descents, roots/rocks/steps, pumping and optional discussion around jumping. These techniques have been refined over 20 years of coaching all ages and abilities of mountainbikers the world over.

Regular results consist of rider changing from being the slowest in their group to the fastest - unless the whole group attends the lesson! or the most scary tracks become the rider's favourites, rider feels safe, in control and confident in all situations, hence... they can go faster.

This is a tried and true method that makes sense across ALL terrain so it's easy to remember. Rather than "do this in corners", and "do this technique on a steep chute", whereby you end up having the problem of what to do if you have a steep chute WITH a corner in it. At MTB SKILLS Finale the method or basic platform is always the same.

Problems that will be resolved;

*You feel like you need to brake, lose speed or will wash out in corners

*Experience difficulty in steep or slippery chutes/ruts

*You are scared of going over the handlebars

*Want to go faster in control or are looking to improve your race-craft

*You find slippery roots, gravel, mud, rocks scary or difficult

*Feels unpredictable whether the bike will kick or not on drops or jumps

*Why and how to pump

We look at all of the above and more, using a systematic, easy to understand method that works on all terrains.
