One to One / Private Groups
Whist we keep all our groups small (maximum of 6 riders per coach), sometimes it can help to have some one on one time. Working with a personal coach means the focus will be just on you, it allows you to progress at your own speed, meaning you will get much more out of your session. 1-2-1 courses cost £145pp and include half a day coaching. (Uplift Pass included).
