On behalf of @theparkkilnwick we would like to highly recommend Gareth as a coach. His session with our youth group (Kilnwick Parklings) held at Dalby Forest was exceptional. Gareth pitched the skills session at exactly the appropriate level and was highly professional. Our teenagers are extremely keen for more sessions with Gareth (and we struggle to find activities that they want to try once, let alone repeatedly)!
I did the Progression course at the weekend. It was a fantastic course that covered a lot. Gareth was a great coach and the videos really helped. I definitely finished the day a better rider thank you!
Great day with Gareth at Dalby today, I wanted to improve my drop offs but got so much more out of the day. I've came away with loads to work on but achieved much more than I expected to. Highly recommend mission mountain biking to anyone at any level who wants to improve there mountain biking.
Awesome day at Dalby forest! Gareth did a tailored course for me and a group of friends, we discussed before what different skills we would like to learn and he designed a bespoke day for us. We all had a really fun day and learnt lots! I'm feeling a lot more confident now and ready to practice my new found skills! If anyone is looking to build their confidence mountain biking Gareth is your man!!
I completed a course with Gareth at Dalby yesterday and had such a great time! I'm not experienced at all and there was a variety of skill mix in our group of friends but he had a great balance of making sure we didn't feel pressured and allowing us see our potential! Did things I never thought I could do! It was great to break the skills down on the field then put it into practice on trails. If you're wondering whether to book a course or not.. definitely do it! Learnt so much in a short amount of time, well worth the money. Thanks Gareth!!!
Me and a friend recently attended a day-long session with Gareth and couldn't recommend highly enough. Gareth was great in advance and tailored the day exactly as we wanted it to be. We've both ridden for a while but really benefited from the day.
Really had a great time doing this with Gareth it was very informative and was the best 50 quid I have spent in a long time I will be booking another course at some point in the future and would recommend doing this if your a novice wanting to build on your skill set most enjoyable
After giving Downhill Mountain biking a go on holiday I was keen to get into MTB further, learn the basics and develop some core skills to give me the confidence to head out on my own and with friends. Gareth’s beginner course, lasting a day in the Dalby forest, was brilliant for this. As a newcomer Gareth was extremely accommodating, patient and encouraging, allowing me to build confidence over the day. He was full of enthusiasm and advice regarding bikes and routes, and having travelled to Dalby with a more experienced MTB friend he was happy to extend his advice and offer tailored courses/trips for the future. All in all a great day out and brilliant value for money!
I can't recommend Gareth's coaching enough. I've ridden MTB on and off for years, but I'm always lagging behind at the back and always seem to make hard work of the trail. Gareth took it back to basics, introducing fundamental skills in a nicely planned progression. By the end of the session I was confidently and quickly riding tricky sections and loving it. Gareth loves biking and his enthusiasm rubs off on you. Great coach! Thanks Gareth.
