At UK Bike Skills, we offer 2 different types of coaching experience: Public Coaching Days and Private Coaching.
Private Coaching is arranged on an available day to suit you. You can come alone, or with a group of friends and we will tailor the syllabus to cater for specific issues you may have with your riding. Our Public Coaching Days are set throughout the year and are open to the public. The syllabus is usually set and we will be covering a specific set of riding techniques e.g. Jumps & Drops or Singletrack Skills. There is, however, always time to ask questions and to cover specific problems throughout the day.
We believe that to truly get the best coaching experience, the coaching syllabus needs to be tailored to you specifically. As such we tailor all our Private Coaching courses to each rider on the day. With this is mind we have come up with a grading system to help you as potential customers grade yourselves before your coaching session with us. This allows us to better understand what you believe your current riding level to be, and importantly what level you want to be at after a coaching session with us.
We understand that everyone is different, and everyone wants to achieve different things in their riding progression.
At UK Bike Skills we are very busy and often get booked months in advance. However, occasionally we get short notice cancellations, details of which can be found here:
You are relatively new to cycling, you can comfortably ride on the road in traffic and are comfortable cycling on fire roads and canal paths, but you’re looking for something more….
You can comfortably ride on non technical forest paths, you may well have visited a UK trail centre, but your looking to extend your skills base and tackle some more technical trails…
You have significant experience, and have ridden at UK trail centres several times. You’re comfortable on technical climbs and descents, but again you’re looking for a broader skills base and the ability to tackle any obstacle on any trail…
You live and breath cycling. You’re a regular user of UK Trail centres and are probably a veteran of trips to the Alps…
Your next step is the pro-contract. At UK Bike Skills we can help you with specific problems in your riding arsenal. At this level it is as much a mental game as it is a practical skills one…
Please note, payment for coaching services serves as confirmation of the booking. Dates and Places remain available until they are paid for.
Exactly what it says on the tin! Our private coaching days are easily the most popular type of coaching we offer. We offer both private individual coaching and private group coaching.
Private individual coaching is a fantastic way to rapidly progress the general level of your riding or to work on a specific problem area. We have had the full range of requests as far as riding issues that need addressing. Whether its a lack of confidence with clearing gap jumps, issues with your cornering or the need to improve your speed management.
No matter what your level, we can help you improve your riding abilities. We’ve coached leading Freeriders, British Cross Country Champions and Four Cross Racers, right through to absolute beginners looking to rapidly improve their riding. Give us a call, we are more than happy to chat about your needs and what we’ll be able to achieve for you.

Public Coaching Days:
Every month, UK Bike Skills offers several public group coaching days. These public courses offer incredible value for money, and are a great way to meet new riding friends.
All public coaching takes place at our dedicated skills coaching centre in Hertfordshire. Occasionally we will offer special public coaching events on request at various trail centres and riding venues. Details of upcoming events are available on request and will be displayed on the homepage of the site prior to the day.
Our public coaching days follow a slightly stricter teaching format, with the content of the course addressing a particular problem or common issue for modern trail centre riders.
