MTB Clinic Beginners Appelscha

 40,00 VAT incl.


For the novice mountain biker who wants to improve skills and be more confident on the MTB

Mountain biking is riding actively through the woods, anticipating the terrain and enjoying nature. Challenging. But if you have little experience and don't feel comfortable in the bends, would you rather avoid the roots section, are you unsure about when to brake and how to ride comfortably through loose sand? In our MTB clinic we will discuss the basics of mountain biking: controlled braking, visual techniques in the terrain, body posture: sitting or standing on the pedals, rolling over small obstacles and riding in curves. We will lay a solid foundation for many safe and sporty miles on the trails.

Join us at the Appelscha mountain bike route, a trail in the Drents Friese Wold, forest and heath.

During the mtb clinic you will get explanations, we will do exercises to master cycling skills, there will be room for feedback and questions and above all, you will experience it yourself. The focus is on technique and fun. We ride as a group, but you can participate at your own level. We ride short stretches on the Appelscha route, so a basic condition is sufficient.

Do you have some more experience?

Nice and welcome, because even then You will receive advice for better technique and more flow. The A5 coaches are there with personal attention and specific tips for you as a beginner mountain biker and challenge you to increase your skills if you already have some experience. We help you gain control and confidence on a mountain bike. This way you can enjoy your ride in the forest in a more relaxed way or go faster and safer on the trail with a cycling buddy.
