Chasing Trails on Bikeradar

Rider on Trek MTBLook out for a Bikeradar article in the next month or so by Ruth Schofield on a 1:1 day's skills coaching with Chasing Trails. Ruth is doing a series from a beginner's point of view where the final aim is to ride Snowdon later in the year. When Ruth arrived at Dalby for the day, she'd missed a course elsewhere due to the snow a few weeks ago. So far she's completed a maintenance course and a basic beginner's intro to mountain biking. The 1:1 with Chasing Trails gave her the chance for a relaxed but comprehensive day where there was no need to feel either held back or moving at too fast a pace in terms of skill level. I don't think Ruth will mind me saying that she's a bit of a perfectionist & was quite hard on herself if she didn't get everything dialled 1st time! Never the less, she was prepared to admit that she'd made great progress during the day & even rode a section of black on the world cup circuit (several times!) The Bikeradar write up will likely focus on drop offs & obstacles, but we had time to cover much more from basics like braking to more advanced stuff like berms. I'll post a link once the article is live, but in the mean time, the previous ones can be found here:
