Family Skills Session 15.03.14

Afan lodge is one of the only hotels in the UK that now has its own MTB Skills area and Pump Track! Jennifer got in touch about our Family Skills courses as they all ride already but they want to get out into the real outdoors more. So Jenny and Ben came over from London with their 15 and 10 year year old kids to explore the area and develop their MTB skills and confidence further.

We started off with some of the basics like setting a bike up and checking it over and fitting helmets properly.

The we moved on to some of the important skills like understanding the importance of the natural position and how to move your weight about the bike. We then looked at pumping, cornering, berms and riding over other trail features.

After a spot of lunch in the Lodge we headed out on to the Green & Blue graded Rookie trail which passes right by the hotel. 

We stopped off on the Rookie Skills Area to as well as doing the optional Blue loop on the trail. 

We returned to Afan Lodge after a great afternoon and both me and Tom hope to see them all out on the trails again soon! Check out their own blog here too with a great video they made Family Skills Blog
