Whats the aim of the Activity?

Mountain biking sessions are run for all levels of ability. If you have never been on a mountain bike before but can ride a bike, our instructors will give you all the help you need to get started. If its more of an improvers course you want then we can arrange something more testing, steep uphill�s and fast down hills.
