Skills stuff… SE around London
Other than Esher Shore (not sure my ego can take the battering the local kids will give it), is there anywhere where I can go for a concentrated skills day? I need to get a bit more confident on drops and jumps and I reckon half a day of a skills-park should do the trick.Posted 8 years agoolaf_hansenMember
Jedi – what were thinking of including in your skills course? The most I can do is wheelie a bit on a good day when the planets are lined up (and I’ve bl**dy well tried hard, ie. every day for 20 minutes). But also, I’d really like to get some trials basics sorted, ie. manuals/pedal kicks/hopping on back wheel/flicking the back round … that kind of thing. And I can’t jump … at all.Posted 8 years agoLemurianMember
Don’t think they actually do skills courses as such, but chicksands (near bedford) is a great place to go learn jumpy/droppy stuff. Wide variety of obstacles – drops/dirt jumps/north shore/mini dh – starting from little up to no-so-little! They a mint 4x track as well which is all rollable so you can build up gradually. As they say, practice makes perfect 😀Posted 8 years agoglenpMember
Steelfan has kindly already recommended us (cheers, Steelfan) – but since you’re in Surrey … http://www.allbikedup.com
Positive we can help your confidence. Tackling drops and jumps as they occur within the flow of a trail is about learning some general trail techniques as much as it is about just trying to nail an individual move.Posted 8 years agolyonsMember
you could talk to John Holbrook. hes a great rider, and teaches up aston hill. He could teach you jumps and drops etc i’m sure…
Look at the stuff towards the bottom of the page.Posted 8 years agocinnamon_girlSubscriber

no-ones beyond help!
jedi – I know I keep saying I want to come to Herts but I guarantee that you will regret the above comment 😳
Perhaps as part of your training you will be required to deal with a “difficult/challenging” rider – give me a call 😉Posted 8 years ago
