Mountain Bike Coaching with Bedgebury CC

Mountain Bike Coaching

The BFCC Coaching Team are delighted to offer our usual pre-pandemic coaching program to our members and a hope that we can all return to some form of normality. We are committed to providing sports education and skills development for all our members from all MTB bike disciplines and rider ability. The club continues to invest in the coaching team with our new trainee coach, Jeremy Brown, who is planning to complete his level 1 coaching qualification this year.

Post-pandemic the Club remains committed to ongoing personal development of our coaches, to support achievement of the British Cycling MTB specific qualification and other related sports education. This is to ensure we can offer our members a quality program of coaching that reflects the demand needs of the sport.

Advance Junior Club members are by invitation only and normally will be selected from the Saturday Junior Club. Follow the link’s below for more specific information for each Club:

Adult Coaching

The coaching team is available to support development of MTB skills for our adult members, so it’s never too late to start learning a deeper understanding of the skills and techniques that will improve your enjoyment of the sport. You may think you know how to ride…, but you may be surprised by the difference a few sessions of coaching will make to your riding.

New group courses are being planned and dates will be published soon.

NOTE: All one-to-one coaching sessions or personal coaching will be under separate contract fees directly with the coach. If you are interested in individual coaching or wish to register your interest in a group session, then please email  Gary Scott – Head Coach with your enquiry.
