Feedback On Our Courses
Just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ for a great day yesterday – my head was aching from everything I had learnt and its given me a real springboard to get practising now! My husband was very impressed I’d managed the ‘Blue pig’ descent, and to be honest I was quite shocked I managed it at all! Although I do have alot of bruises and I am feeling a bit battered today, I am itching to get out on my bike again! I would definitely recommend you to my friends! Kind regards Michelle
Thank you very much for getting in touch and forwarding photos. I really enjoyed the day. I learned loads and would like to do more. You are an excellent teacher.
Thank you ever so much for a great day, I was a bit anxious about it, and you managed to put me at ease within minutes! I was impressed at the stuff you had me going down, it was the kind of thing I would normally have looked at, panicked and walked! You were really patient with my nerves and slowness, and even if I was utterly rubbish, you never made me feel embarrassed or inadequate – a true professional, plus a nice chap! I really enjoyed my day, and have been signing your praises your praises to biker friends. I’m nor sure what you can improve to be honest, I thought it was a really good experience, and I took a lot from it. I really liked the fact you get a report with pics at the end of it, nice touch and really useful. Mel
Thanks for the day, I had a really good time and learnt an awful lot. I liked how you got the balance between the theory of teaching the skills and then putting them into practice on some interesting trails. I felt I definitely improved and hope to get out more on my bike after that. Thanks again, Ian
“Steve is a great teacher who teaches the fundamental techniques and the theory behind these techniques required for a mountain biking” “At the start of the day I was a complete beginner but by the end of the day Steve had taught me the skills required to tackle even the most demanding trails”
I would like to say a big thank you to Steve for the training on Saturday. Im really glad that I booked myself onto the beginners mountain bike course. It’s enabled me to learn new skills and gain confidence that I couldn’t have attained by myself. It’s also allowed me to understand where I have been going wrong when out riding each week by myself. The techniques/stratergies were explained well and in a way that I understood. I achieved most of the skills on the day with a need to continue practicing to refine them. The photos Steve took while training and the footage of skills practiced were forwarded by email. Detailed feedback was also emailed on my development during the training day. All of this is most beneficial and a positive reference to use, while continuing to practice my mountain biking skills. Thank you & I look forward to coming back for the intermediate course!! Kind regards Ursula Wood
I had a really good day on Saturday and learnt plenty. The feedback for you is all positive, I thought you were a very good teacher and explained everything very well. Hope these testimonials are of use to you. I will post a cheque to you next week for the book (my cheque book is at home). Hope to see you when I do the intermediate course. All the best, Matt
I thoroughly enjoyed my day and feel I learned many new skills which will enable me to not only improve my riding but find the more I improve them then the more the enjoyment, a win win as I see it. As far as comments on your instruction I could only say keep on as you do because I couldn’t fault one aspect of your instructing style, you made it easy to understand at a perfect learning pace in the best relaxed atmosphere any ride out could possibly be in. Your style in instilling confidence really is second to none. I’ve signed up for mtb challenge at weekend and looking forward to putting new skills in to practice. Will be experimenting with new bar set up from now and take what you said onboard to improve position now I know what I’m aiming for. Once again thanks for great day riding and keep up the good work. cheers Mick
I really enjoyed the day (apart from the rain). The areas you covered on the course were perfect giving me the confidence back which I lost last year to a bike accident. The feedback and photos are excellent, telling and showing me the areas where I need to improve. I am so pleased with the progress I made over the day and now being a more relaxed bike ridier with a big smile rather then a face of fear. Thank you. Amy
A really big thank you again for the day. I felt very privileged to have the one to one tutoring – pure chance I know, but a great advantage. I really did feel that I have gained a far better insight into what I should be doing [I will be waking in the small hours shouting the mantra ‘ Look ahead !!’] and it has given me a lot more confidence in my approach. All credit to you for your patience and very subtle prods in pushing the envelope – breaking down at least some of my innate reservations. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you – hopefully Andrew will be in touch soon and in time I will be back with a bit more lead in my MTB pencil! Thanks again – I am looking forward to trying some of the routes in the book over the summer. Best wishes Phil Schofield
