Patrick got in touch, he was looking for a bit of extra flow on the trails and also to sort out his hops and drops too. The weather was looking a bit dodgy, but fortunately cleared on the way to Stanmer and we were treated to some sun, even though it was extremely windy.
Piotr got in touch, he’s only been riding since last year and he’d had an ‘incident’ on one of the local singletracks which had dented his confidence and spoilt his flow on the trails.
As we rode up to the first singletrack we discussed what he wanted to get out of the session and when [...]
Simon and Jordan got in touch, as newcomers to mountainbiking they’ve decided to kick it off by riding the South Downs Way over a three day period. So they were keen to get off on the right foot by getting started with a skills session.
We headed out onto the singletrack for the skills [...]
Mike got in touch, he was looking for a skills tune up, he’s been riding a long time and has a lot of experience having done events like the Mega Avalanche. Stanmer Park was incredibly chilly yet again, where is spring exactly? Having said that though the trails have started to dry out nicely.

We had a good group of six for this ride, we went over some of the techniques we had covered previously, rode some of Stanmer’s sweet singletrack sections. There was even a return of the ‘singing in the singletrack’ – I know [...]
Richard got in touch, although he has been riding a long time and is fit he felt he needed a bit more help finding that all important ‘flow’ on the singletrack and descents. Amazingly the weather decided to play ball for the first time in a long time and it was sun, dry trails and [...]
The second guided ride for the FitBitch Boot Camp performance team turned out to be considerably warmer than the previous one thank goodness! We were back at Stanmer Park and trail conditions were excellent. We went back over some of the techniques that we’d looked at the first week and generally reinforced them, whilst riding [...]
Keat’s mum got in touch, Keat and Charlie have been riding the trails above steyning a lot and have had a few ‘incidents’, so she decided to get them a good grounding on their skills to help them enjoy their riding a bit more and get them off to a good start.
It was freezing [...]
After last week’s skills session at Stanmer Park this week we were out to practice skills on the trail and get a few miles in with the FitBitch Boot Camp Performance Team. It was really cold, windy and with some snow mixed in too! Here’s a couple of pictures from the ride, we’re off out [...]
