3) E-bike MTB intro

Ratio 1:4 (max)
One day – 10.00 to 4.30 – £100 per person

While e-bikes are definitely the best thing since sliced bread, there are many aspects of them that make them different from a human-powered mountain bike.  Our intro course shows you how to get the most from your new best friend.

As E-Bike Mtb says, “All new relationships come with an initial getting-to-know-you phase. The same applies to your new bike. eMTBs are unique because of their weight, their ability to accelerate, and the power they lend you to muscle up steep climbs. Faced with these advantages, you might find yourself reaching your limits sooner than anticipated. It’s therefore wise to get to grips with eMTB handling skills by attending a specific course before going wild on the mountainsides. Let the professionals advise you on how to tackle certain situations with ease. Trust us, you’ll have more fun as a result.”

So, with that in mind, put yourself in the hands of our team of e-bike instructors…

What you will learn:

  • Setting off
  • Balance and control
  • Dynamic braking
  • Climbing
  • Descending
  • Cornering
  • Power boost, modulation and conservation
  • Rucksack essentials
