Last weekend I had a 1-2-1 bike skills day, with Graham O'Hanlon at Snowbikers. The day was a birthday present from my husband and it was brilliant!
I would never claim to be a good rider, but I have riden for 5 years and survived 2 trips to the alps, though my basic skill level was not great, and I knew I wasn't getting the most out of myself or my bike, so this was just what I needed.
It was a whole day of learning such things as balance and body position, track stands, front wheel lifts, rear wheel lifts, bunny hops, proper cornering and braking techniques etc, it was so interesting and informative to have someone watch your every move on the bike and really force you to think about what you are actually doing while you are riding. I came away with all the techniques which I now just need to put in to practice! I really would recommend it to anyone, even my husband was a little jealous of my new found skills!
