Coaching Sessions are available with us, we have set dates with different sessions happening in the evening and we also do private tailor made sessions – please get in touch.

Coaching can take place on tracks of your choice, we can come to you, or some suggestions are below:

To book please email us regarding availability – info@westcoastbiking.co.uk Or drop into Nevis Cycles Witch’s Trails hire Shop at Nevis Range and have a chat with us about what you wish to focus on and how a session could work for you. 

  • Minimum people / session length – In general, minimum people on a coaching session is 1 person, and sessions typically last 2 hours. We are however very adaptable 🙂

All coaches are both qualified as coaches and guides (two separate qualifications) with British Cycling and have some great ways of improving & tweaking riders technique, and building confidence.

We are always looking to progress our own skills for coaching mountain bike techniques often working with Glenmore Lodge National Centre on professional development days. 

We also advertise evening group sessions during the Spring & Summer in Lochaber/Fort William – Girls & Mixed groups  these are all done with me (Emma) as the coach and I gain as much from coaching as the riders gain from my coaching. It is great to see confidence build and technique improve. 

Coaching Mountain Biking

Here is a message received from one of my sessions:

“Thanks again for tonight, it was really enjoyable, I can’t believe after a short lesson that I had the confidence to go down the single track and then the blue run without thinking about it as a problem, brilliant”

Come along and I can help you enjoy more trails, ride with more confidence and better technique.
