April – Get a new view on the world
You might’ve seen photos of a friend on Facebook climbing on a rock face in a stunning location and thought… ‘I’d love that to be me, but I have no idea where to start’. Our ‘Get Started Rock Climbing’ courses are the perfect way to get going in this incredibly rewarding sport, on a course designed to fit your comfort and ability level.
Rock climbing has had a huge surge in popularity over the last few years, joining the ranks of Olympic sports for 2020. We think this is down in no small part to it being a great way to get fitter, have fun and improve your mental health. Accessible at so many levels, indoors and out, climbing is suitable for all shapes, sizes and levels of ambition. This course will demystify the sport and gently introduce you to its practices – so no need to worry about getting anything wrong.

May – Unlock your pedal potential
The rise of the GoPro has given mountain biking a reputation for being super gnarly – but this doesn’t need to be the case. Mountain biking can also mean gentle forest trails and family outings, seeing the countryside swoosh by from your wheels. Our Mountain Bike Fundamentals course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to make sure you get the most out of every ride, wherever you happen to be. Develop good technical riding habits right from the start to set yourself up properly, and ensure that shiny new bike won’t go gathering dust.
