Bobby, our bike expert and I would like to attend to you individually. Most important is fun, safety and flexibility. As you will arrive with your families and not everything can be planned ahead, we will meet in the evenings and discuss our programme for the next day. If you’d like to spend time with your family you can always take a break. The programme includes excercises in the terrain, tours, bike settings, video analysis and gymnastics.
Target group: The MTB week is intended for beginners and experienced bikers. No matter if you feel insecure or if you’d like to improve your technique we will gladly assist you. Fun and safety first.
Technical exercises: We will spend ample time to improve the feeling for the mountain bike in various situations and apply the new abilities in our tours throughout the week. By using cable cars in and around Gerlos we can cover some altitude to reach some great biking trails. The following basics will provide you with more safety and flow:
