Firecrest Mountain Bike Skills Training
The Cycle Hub, Station Approach, Leighton Buzzard, Beds
December 21st and 23rd and December 28th and 30th 10am – 3pm
“How would you like to escape the elements and learn some new skills on your mountain bike this Christmas?”
Firecrest have used their years of mountain bike skills instruction to put together a program of courses at The Cycle Hub in Leighton Buzzard. To escape the elements the holiday program will be using the warehouse space available inside the Cycle Hub in Leighton Buzzard directly opposite Leighton Buzzard Station.
The Cycle Hub will be transformed into an indoor mountain bike centre using the town’s Shoretrax portable mountain bike trail system. The modular timber trail combined with a series of ‘skills stations’ will be used by instructors from Firecrest Mountain Biking to develop skills and complete the Go Mountain Bike Mountain Bike Proficiency Program.
Go Mountain Bike or Go MTB for short is a new mountain bike proficiency scheme developed by Cycling Scotland and the UK’s leading Cycle Training Organisations and it’s across four key areas. These are Riding Skills Level 1-5, Sharing the Outdoors Levels 1-5, First Aid Levels 2-5 and Being Independent & Self-supporting Levels 1-5.
The courses in the Christmas period will focus on the Riding Skills working through from level 1 to 3 so it’s ideal for riders of all abilities aged from 8-16. Attendees must be able to ride unaided and bring their own bike and helmet and a packed lunch.
Firecrest Mountain Biking Skills Instructor Dave Martin said “Getting out on your bike when the days are short and the weather is rubbish is never easy at this time of year. The Go MTB program is a great and running these courses inside lets you escape the elements, ride your bike and develop your skills at the same time”.
The courses cost £20 per day and are running on the following days over the Christmas Holidays:
