    Had a great skills session with Charlie. We were briefed with the plan before leaving, with all going to plan nicely.
    As a total newbie to CX, I picked up loads of new skills & tips about bike handling, body positioning & mounting/dismounting off road.
    Charlie was a patient, knowledgeable & fun coach. Jump on this session as it’s the best bang for buck I’ve come across. Highly recommended!
    Thanks Charlie!

    I did a session to refresh skills and get confidence back after a year off the bike. Charlie was patient, gave good descriptions of what skills we were doing and watched carefully to help us master the task.
