Monday was a big day at Discovery Bike Park. 
Since the park is only open on the weekend, we road up to the top to drop onto the blue and green lines. Skye had her first day clipped into her bike!

Before attending please ensure your bikes are in a safe working order. A bike check can be done at the start of the session if needed and will be done at the start of every beginners course.

Every rider attending any course MUST wear a helmet, no helmet no ride. Other safety equipment such as gloves, is not compulsory but is strongly recommended.
Please bring the appropriate clothing for a rainy day – thermals, waterproofs etc. The trails are long and having the right clothing will make the day even more enjoyable.

Hydration is key, please bring plenty of food/energy bars and water/energy drinks.
