Learn more about course difficulty



Ideally suited for beginners, this course will provide you with strong foundations on which to develop your riding. We will provide you with a framework to develop your knowledge of the ‘why to’ not just the ‘how to'. If you are new to the sport our structured coaching system will change the way you ride, help you get more from your riding and be a springboard for future progression. 

Free uplift pass for the whole day.

Generally, this course will stay on the Green Beginner trails but may also ride on the Blue Intermediate trails where suitable for the group.

  • Identify and apply best practise
  • Develop core skills
  • Identify and overcome performance cues and understand the psychological skills required

This would be the ideal stepping stone to our BikePark Wales Improver coaching course.

Coaching times are as follows;
Morning - Please arrive at 9:00am for a 9.30am start.
Afternoon - Please arrive at 1.00pm for a 1:30pm start

Sessions will last between 3 - 3.5 hours.

You need to be 16 years old to attend coaching on your own and must be 14 years or older if accompanied by an adult (The accompanying adult must also be booked onto the same course). 

Below are some guidelines on the difficulty of our courses, it is designed to ensure you do not book on a course that is too difficult for you.

These are the minimum requirements to ensure that the group functions effectively. If your skills are above the minimum requirement you can still book on and learn a lot from a course. For example, you may ride black runs weekly but have a skills gap regarding corners. Carving Corners is an intermediate course and is therefore suitable for you as an advanced rider.

Beginner – For riders who are new to mountain biking or wish to learn on our Green trails.
Intermediate – For riders who can ride Blue trails at BikePark Wales. 
Advanced – For riders who can confidently ride Red trails at BikePark Wales.
