Mountain Biking

Build confidence through new skills if you're new to the sport or looking to develop your enjoyment further.

The fastest growing sport in the UK. A session on mountain bikes is a great way to build skills and confidence whether new to biking or already experienced. You will start with games and skills in a practice area before heading off to explore some of the amazing local trails.

You'll build skills and knowledge in body positioning on the bike, speed control, handling corners and line choices.

Routes will vary depending on the groups ability and age. You will explore Keswicks mountain bike centre at Whinlatter Forest under the watchful and expert instruction of one of our guides.
