BikePark Wales is a perfect place for skills coaching, we have every kind of terrain, surface and obstacle you can think of and an efficient uplift service meaning you will spend maximum time working on your skills during each session delivered by our expert coaches.
Our skills sessions help to break down each skill into its key elements enabling you to improve your riding and understand how to improve. We use advanced techniques such as video analysis to help you to understand where and how improvements can be made. You can choose the course that suits you best and focuses on the key skills you wish to improve. Our courses are suitable for Beginner through to Expert standard riders, everyone can learn from a coaching session.
All coaching courses include an FOC uplift pass per person for the duration of that session. If your session finishes before the uplift session you are on ends, you may use the uplift for the remainder of that session, you will also be able to collect a pedal pass for the part of the day during which you are not being coached. 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). Private bookings for younger children can be arranged and we also run kids coaching courses specifically for younger riders.

Whist we keep all our groups small (maximum of 6 riders per coach), sometimes it can help to have some one on one time.
