“Mountain Biking Skills Course 16/01/2017 at Dunster : absolutely brilliant. Perfect for someone like me whom new to Mountain Biking. 5hrs well balanced between actual riding and practising, as well as demonstrations and discussion. Dan (Instructor) very engaging, considerate, and put the small group of 5 at ease very quickly. Good fun, got wet and muddy, now know of some great trails around Dunster, met some nice people, excellent. Strongly recommend this course to anyone thinking about starting mountain biking”.
