- Llandegla Skills Courses – Anyone been?
Llandegla’s Jumps and Drops course is the best money I’ve spent on any bike.
I did it when The Don was running it and it was great.
Al is an even better coach though and I’ve since had a private lesson with him.
Do it. You will come away with more confidence and skills, I’m sure.
I put up a video of my day all that time ago on YouTube – it’s cringe worthy for me to look back on it now but I couldn’t do any of it then and we successfully did everything in the day. It was awesome. I’ll dig it out.Posted 5 months agogelertSubscriber
The Jumps and Drops course back then:
And more recently on the same jumps. My confidence goes up and down after crashes so I’ve never really mastered jumps that are much bigger than this. Being a safer rider when jumping and dropping is what I wanted to achieve. I now pretty much always crash when cornering and not jumping or dropping so it worked 🙂

Mate of mine went recently as he got a gift voucher. He’s been mountain biking for years and rides stuff like Llandegla black at a rapid old pace, and is happy to jump small doubles and standard size drops. He said he got a few good tips out of it, but most of what was taught was already within his skill set.
Probably depends on your existing confidence/experience levels.Posted 5 months agoFuriousSubscriber
Are these any good? Im thinking of the “Al Bond Jumps and Drops” course. I know the default answer on here is to go see Jedi but thats a bit far away for me.
I’ve done both and while I hear you on Jedi being a long way to go (it was for me), it is/was on another level.
That said, my riding did improve after the skills day at Llandegla.Posted 5 months ago
