What am I after now, more old tosh out of your garage, a free lift to Afan Nope

Im in the process of completing a British Cycling coaching qualification. To enable the final rubber stamp I need to deliver 6 x 1 hour sessions.

The plan is to find a quiet car park area (not dogging wood) and work on any of the following, depending on what you want / need.

This will be easy going, fun and hopefully not to much piss taking from you at me (((Ron) (Simon) (everyone))). The plan is for everyone to get something worthwhile out of it.

This is for mountain bikers or scummers. All types of bikes are fine.

Some of the areas that I need to cover are:
A - Bike handling techniques - contact points (gripping and seat position), weight shifting (for balance and cornering), slow riding (flash track stands), balance etc
B - Core cycling techniques - mounting/dismounting (sounds easy but there are amazing skills to learn even here), pedalling (how to spin those legs), braking (how to and when not to), cornering (head & shoulder position, grip), gear selection, descending, climbing
C - Group riding techniques - Leading and following (slip streaming), riding next to another rider (without taking them out), changing place in a group (moving off the front and working as a team)

If you would like to give it a go, let me know if A B or C suits you, or a combo.

I need a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 12 people - all abilities welcome.

Thinking of running this 6pm to 630 next Wednesday 30th April.
Possible locations - Either in the Chingford ride start car park or on the flat grass area opposite the hunting lodge.

When finished may be do a ride in the forest or road, then a beer :-)

THIS IS TOTAL FREEEEEEEEEEE :woohoo:
I love mud really, especially in the summer when its BONE DRY

Free training from a legend - what's not to like about that, I'm in for starters.

I'll even bring my BC membership card so you can quote my number on your list of satisfied (non paying) customers!

Si, TT, Ron, Omi, Ollie, Ben. He's a mate, let's give him some proper support!
Never cease to be amazed!

mounting/dismounting

Is this covering other areas of life, or just cycling? Just checking, because I always struggle to know when its acceptable!

Looks like you've got yourself a pool of pupils to die for Steve.

Love it when the group responds to a call for aid.
Never cease to be amazed!

Tools

The forest is full of hazards that can bring an end to your ride, so bring a mini pump, spare tube and multi-tool so we can all spend more time pedalling.

Essential

It's simple NO helmet, NO ride. Other than that you can wear whatever keeps you warm, dry and happy. But, be warned some days the forest can be extremely muddy.

Under 35?

No problem, we have regular riders who are 25 years young and some who are 50+. As long as you can keep up you are more than welcome to join us.

About

MBRO35 (Mountain Bike Riders Over 35) are a social group of riders, not a club. As you may have guessed we are mostly over 35 years of age although some that ride are younger so don't let that put you off.

The group ride on a Saturday morning at 11am in Epping Forest which is to the North East of London. A lot of us have lived around and cycled in the forest for a good number of years and we are lucky to have some regular riders who know their way around the miles of singletrack very well. We ride all year round and usually get a pretty good turn out in all but the foulest weather. We are a sociable group and the emphasis is on enjoyment rather than speed or the mileage travelled. Having said that, the rides can be fairly quick at times and whilst we welcome riders of all abilities you will need a good level of fitness in order to keep up as well as a mechanically sound mountain bike. We ride mostly on the forest singletrack, the narrowness of the trails and exposed tree roots make for some challenging technical riding.

In addition to the regular Saturday rides we also do forest night rides on a Wednesday evening at 7pm as well as occasional away days or weekends. If you prefer your wheels on firmer ground, there is also a strong road contingent within the group that often rides out into the Essex and Hertfordshire countryside on a Saturday or Sunday. The road rides usually leave earlier in the day and head out via High Beech for trips of anything up to 70 miles. Most local rides are followed by a debrief in The Station House pub in Chingford where thanks to a very amiable Landlady we have a place to wash the bikes and store them in safety while we have a few beers and discuss the events of the day. You can also read about some of our most recent rides in the Ride Reports section on the forum.
