BFCC remains committed to providing sport education and skill development for all our members. The Committee continues to invest in developing coaches with plans to train more coaches in MTB specific skill levels of expertise to match the growing demands of our membership.
These one-day courses will be lead by two British Cycling coaches and aims to develop the core skills to support riders in improving their enjoyment of the 13km off-road single track at Bedgebury Forest. The course will look at the various techniques required to be a competent and skilled rider in an off-road environment, although the skills learnt can apply to any cycling discipline. This intermediate course is aimed at riders who ride regularly and understand the basic principles of cycling ideally, but not essentially, in an off-road environment. We will cover many aspects of the more intermediate/advance mountain biking skills, which look to develop & build on from your current riding skills.
Our goal is to make the off-road cycling exciting and to encourage you to develop your newly learnt skills through regular riding. Our qualified and highly experience coaches are dedicated to passing on the techniques that look so easy, but can prove so difficult to execute. The dedicated coaching area continually evolves and provides a safe & friendly environment in which all riders of can achieve new skills and confidence.
This year we are planning to offer two initial courses, although more dates may become available upon demand from our members:
- Adult Intermediate course – Saturday 11th March 2017.
- Ladies Intermediate Off-Road Skills Course – Sunday 4th June 2017
All courses starts from 10.00am to 3pm. It costs just £35 for the one day course, so book early to avoid disappointment as places will be limited to just 8 riders on a first come basis.
