MTB Clinic Advanced Appelscha

 40,00 VAT incl.


For the advanced mountain biker who wants to improve his/her mountain bike technique.

You have experience with mountain biking and master the basic skills such as controlled braking, emergency stop, basic posture, shifting, basic cornering. During your rides in more challenging terrain, you will experience that there is room to refine your technique.
How do you keep maximum grip in a turn? What is line choice, approach speed and body posture in the turn? How do you take that steep climb smoothly? And do you manage to descend in a more relaxed way?

Join us on the Appelscha Bosberg mountain bike trail in the Drents Friese Wold.

This challenging singletrack in the forest is regularly in the top 10 most popular routes of The mtb route is characterised by short steep climbs, few flat sections and various types of bends. Perfect terrain to get going.

During the mountainbike clinic you will get an explanation, we will do exercises to improve your skills, there will be room for feedback and questions, and most of all, you will have the opportunity to try it yourself.

The A5 coaches give personal attention and specific tips.

The focus is on mtb technique and fun. The pace of the clinic is average. We ride segments of the mtb route Bosberg Appelscha, a basic condition is required. Where possible, we will increase or decrease speed.
