How about 2 days riding whilst being coached by Bex Baraona, staying in quirky cosy pods in the Tweed Valley and meet some new and like minded people?! Either bring a friend along and share a Pod, or meet someone new and share a Pod.
This weekender is for intermediate riders, confident on red trails, and either confident or dabbling on black trails. During the coaching we will look at your basic skills on the bike and find where you can improve or learn new techniques in order to ride with confidence, have the skills to try new features or trails and generally improve every aspect of your mountain biking. We will look at roots, rocks, loose terrain, technical features, cornering etc.
The weekender will bring together 8 riders to enjoy riding and challenging yourself and hopefully meet some new friends and enjoy hanging out all weekend. The weekend will look like this:
Arrive Friday 3pm onwards for Check-in.
Welcome meet/briefing at 5pm at Traquair Arms Hotel (for those that don't want to cook, you could stay in the pub after the meet for dinner or other places in Innerleithen village).
Saturday morning enjoy your breakfast basket that will be in the Pods ready for you. 10am Start for coaching session with Bex at Glentress Hotel (5 minute drive or approx. 15 minute ride from the Pods). Coaching will wrap up at 1pm and by that time you will be ready for some food!
Saturday afternoon, enjoy more riding if you want more (we can point you in the direction for some great trails), or unwind and enjoy the peaceful setting of the Pods.
Saturday night is up to you, cook in or eat out, we can give you some recommendations!
Sunday 10am Start for coaching session with Bex again, building on the techniques from Day 1 and putting it to practice. We will see were the group is at and design the session accordingly, day 2 will be at Innerleithen trails. Check out is at 10am from the Pods so please bring everything with you ahead of day 2 coaching session.
Post coaching session hot drink and cake. Margot the Pod owner will meet us after the coaching session to warm you back up and say our farewells :)
