I’ve got a one to one session with Tony from UK Bikeskills in the next couple of weeks and I was just wondering what to expect – should I go with an agenda i.e I need to work on X, Y, Z or will he use special powers to deduce just that from watching me ride?
Either way I’m very excited 🙂Posted 4 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
You’ll have a chat, Tony will get you do some really simple stuff, possibly involving sticks, you may well fall off at this stage (you can guess how I know this! 😳 ) and then you will progress.
By the time you go home, you’ll be astonished at how you’ve progressed and grinning ear to earPosted 4 years ago
Don’t worry, Tony is pretty laid back, but he really knows how to get the best out of his riders, generally without them ever realising how he’s doing it!
At the moment, after a weeks snowboarding, he’s probably so laid back he’s actually horizontal! So, check your bikes in good order, take on open mind and enjoy yourself

i had a great time with a great blokePosted 4 years ago
He could tell what I was doing wrong even looking the other way
They don’t call him the jedi for nothing! On my first visit, Tony was up at the top of the site making coffee, and i was still down at the bottom just messing around on my bike. Trying to do an endo turn, the front wheel tucked under and off i fell off with a thump. 2 sec later i heard a “what happened there then?” shout carrying from the top of the site on the wind! BUSTED! from about 200yards away! Embarrassing! lolPosted 4 years agosmcicrMember
+1 for the above comments.
get a good nights sleep beforehand – especially if you have a reasonable drive to get there.
take plenty of food / snacks etc to keep your energy levels up through the day.
DON’T be cycling back up the hill. At all. Get off and push 🙂
I’m still convinced it’s without doubt the best money you will ever spend on cycling – y’know, once you’ve actually bought a bike ;D
enjoy the day!Posted 4 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
To be honest, I wasn’t sure if he was seeing what I was doing wrong or going through a set routine?
His coffee is excellent though and he was a great and patient teacher. He must have done some good in me as, despite still being a bit of a wuss when confronted with a table top, I was doing gap jumps within a few hours of arriving!
I loved my session with Tony and am thinking of going back for another one to one later this year.Posted 4 years agoMrGreedySubscriber
Once you’ve been, you will forever have a little Tony sitting on your shoulder as your ride, shouting “Feet!”, “Look!” and suchlike in your ear at the appropriate moments. Nothing he will teach you is complicated, but you’ll wonder how the hell you have been managing without it all these years – it’s genuinely the best money you’ll ever spend on riding.
(And +1 to make sure you’re well rested, eat/drink plenty and don’t try riding up the hill)Posted 4 years ago
