MIAS Level 5 mountain bike coach and tutor with QCF level 3.

I also have the Mountain Bike Expedition and Night Ride Leader qualifications.
I safely lead my clients around the interesting, challenging and sometimes demanding areas of the Peak District.
My rides and courses follow the structure of SEL:
I will lead a ride in a safe manner, ensuring it’s enjoyable, and you learn to control your bike during the ride.
I focus on:
- Use of gears, brakes, steering, suspension
- Stance, posture and body positioning
- Observation and reading terrain features
You will have an upgraded knowledge of how your bike works and where to place your body for different types of terrain. This will improve your climbing, your descents and your level of fun while out on your bike.
A skilful knowledgeable rider is a stress free rider, and a stress free rider is a happier and safer rider.
I am insured, hold an enhanced DBS disclosure (previously known as CRB) and subscribe to the annual DBS update service.
I am a first aid trainer with Advanced Outdoor First Aid, Paediatric First Aid, First Aid at Work qualifications and I undergo Safeguarding Children Training yearly.
Risk assessments are available for all activities.
I’m very proud to support Edale Mountain Rescue. If you have a few pounds a month to spare, you can support this excellent charity who operate every day of the year, rescuing people who have accidents or injuries in the outdoors.
