Women Only Courses
womens MTB skills courses
gwp-120724-ctc-55ladies MTB skills courses technical
We have historically found that women often adapt quicker to skills instruction (with fewer bad habits and an openness to learn - but don't tell the fella's that!). All of our Skills Days can be available as women only courses at the same prices as shown above. We will run specific open dates for women who prefer to learn in a female only environment and whilst essentially they are the same courses with the same content you may feel there is less pressure and more suppo
rt. For more information on which course is right for you, click here.

These courses are:

  • Run by female tutors (by prior arrangement)
  • Orientated to your needs
  • Fun, practical courses to suit your level
  • No pressure, lots of support
