Choosing the right course

Coaching Courses

Our coaching ethos is based around deliberate and productive practice. Rather than practicing those things you can already do, we’ll identify those skills and techniques that you need to develop to get you to the next level. We’ll also look to transfer those skills to the trail. We want to build riders rather than car park heroes.

E-MTB Courses

E-Bikes have massively increased the accessibility of mountain biking and also increased the fun we can have on our bikes. Although E-MTB's are very similar to regular bikes in many ways but there are some important differences in how they ride. We have put together two course levels to help guide you through the skills of E-MTB.

Leadership Courses

People often assume that you need to be an experienced rider to become a Mountain Bike Leader. While some experience and basic off-road bike handling skills are required, our training courses are delivered to help develop areas that need work and re-affirm areas that are already good.

Coaching Qualifications

Mountain Bike Coaching is aimed at coaches new to the mountain bike environment, as well as current mountain bike coaches who want to develop their existing knowledge and skills.

Kids Courses

Our hugely popular kids camps are back. We are excited to announce new dates for this summer and get back out on the trails. Our kids camps are built around having fun on our bikes while learning and developing our bike skills. There will be plenty of skids, jumps, turns and laughs as we explore the best trails at Coed Y Brenin. Check out our two different age groups below for further details.

  • positive review  Great half day tuition with Ed. Unlocked the potential of me and my bike. Would recommend if you’re new to mountain biking or experienced you’ll definitely learn something. Ed used an iPad to film and review techniques on the trail so you could see how you were progressing

  • positive review  My wife and I had a top day being coached by Ed yesterday. My wife loved the day, and only realised she'd ridden down a rocky singletrack descent later in the day that she'd had to walk down a part of earlier ✔️ Ed is good at breaking the techniques down to the smallest detail and Jo found that helped a load. I'm confident on the bike and thought I was pretty good with basic techniques but, after a chat about riding and seeing me do a few things, Ed had me right back to basics and getting my foundations revisited and improved... plenty to keep working on, and I felt much more confident throughout the rest of the day because of this. Ed is a very good coach, easy to talk to, and more importantly, knows what he's talking about. We'd definitely recommend that you spend some time on a course with Pedal MTB Ltd.

    positive review  Me and my son recently attended two coaching sessions with Ed at Pedal MTB and we can’t recommend him enough. Ed has an amazing ability to teach different skill levels to a mixed standard/age group. After stripping everything right back to basics, he carefully rebuilt our riding technique making sure that the fundamentals were firmly in place. We took away lots of new skills and confidence, which is exactly what we both needed. I would definitely recommend Pedal MTB no matter what level of rider you are. Ed’s tailor-made sessions are not only informative, they are great fun too. We’ll definitely be back to build on what we’ve learnt and hopefully by then Ed will be able to manual the length of the car park - best you get some practise in Ed! ?

  • 5 star review  A good day of coaching with Al. Went through the basics of bike maintenance in the morning then practical on the bikes after lunch. Bike control, (which was excellent) in the car park then used part of the Gwydir mawr for further coaching. Ideal for beginners to learn the basic.
