Location: Stevie Smith Bike Park
Time: 10am – 2.30pm
Ability Level: Intermediate
Over 19’s only.
Stevie Smith bike park has an excellent selection of features that can really benefit riders of all abilities. There’s a small skills park in the woods, multiple height drops, a pump track and some jumps.
We will begin in the pump track, to practice some bio-mechanics in the pumping technique. This can be quite a tiring, so be ready for some exercise. We will also talk about suspension and how that effects our bike through the pump track and in jumps.
We will progress slowly through some drills on flat land to lock in some of the skills required to successfully and cleanly land drops. Then we will allow plenty of time to practice our drop technique, with the option of progressing in height as you start to feel more confident. This will be accompanied by video feedback to assist in your learning.
We will have a break for snacks before progressing onto the smaller jumps in the park. You will have the option to move onto the bigger jumps should your technique and confidence take you there.
Maximum 6 participants.
Terms and Conditions Apply.
