REFINE YOUR TECHNIQUE ON STEEPER, MORE DIFFICULT TERRAIN. WITH OUR ROCKS, ROOTS AND CHUTES SESSION ON THE NATURAL TRAILS OF GLENTRESS.
For the experienced mountain biker who wants to learn some extra technical skills for riding rougher, steeper terrain. We’ll teach you advanced body positioning that assists your flow on harder lines, to find security from grip, not from your brakes! You’ll also tackle drops, roots and rocks on the way through Glentress’ best natural trails too. This group course concentrates on tight, technical terrain where good, fast decision making is the key to good flow and a safe ride!
We’ll cover most features found on black graded trails and beyond. All on the steeper, challenging terrain of Glentress’ steeper, natural “off piste” trails.

- Advanced body positioning.
- Fundamentals of weight distribution and grip.
