All Bikes | Fully Coached | Trails & single track | All-day
Plenty of time to grapple and practise the skills required to ride gravel trails with confidence and aplomb on a full day’s gravel skills session.
We’ll be riding trails and stopping every so often to ‘session’ a particular part, be this a tricky little climb or a rooty section. Include a stop for lunch, where the conversation normally revolves around gravel riding, routes and what's needed for bikepacking adventures.
Skills covered: Riding position, climbing, descending, off-camber, cornering, roots and loose gravel.
Rider requirements: To join this ride you need to be a competent cyclist able to ride for 2 hours or more

How to organise
Gather together a group and find a time on the schedule or just send me an email. I'll be in contact and we can agree on a convenient meeting point - normally a cafe local to a park or woodland.
We can meet anywhere within a 30-mile radius of London, when scheduling a time please bear in mind that I'm coming from Brixton in SW London.
Once you have made a booking please contact me to arrange the finer details.
