Just spent the weekend with Ridelines on a 2 day intermediate course after my brother recommended it to me.
Been mountain biking for about 3 years now and I felt my riding had plateaued to the point where I wanted to try the more difficult stuff but I was "surviving" each ride rather than enjoying it. My more experienced riding buddies were leaving me behind and the worst thing was I had no idea how to improve.
I booked the two day course and I cant recommend it highly enough if you really wat to improve your skills on a mountain bike. Andy who owns the company has a great instructing style that others could learn a lot from (I say this from the postion of a qualified waterski instructor) He breaks down riding techniques and skills into bite sized chunks that are easy to understand and achieve on a step by step basis. Over the two days he pinpointed where I was going wrong, identified the bad habits (or poor techniques) that I had acquired and gave me the tools to progress in my riding.
This isnt a quick fix and I'm still no Dany Hart but I know now where I was going wrong but by practising the new techniques I was taught i know my riding will progress and I will enjoy tearing down the side of ountains with a grin rather than a grimace!
