"In May 2021 I took an Intro to Mountain Biking course at Dialed In Cycling! I can’t say enough about our amazing instructors, Guillaume & Joris. These two are incredibly patient, communicative and consistent with their instruction. They were so encouraging and good-natured, and really made this course approachable for beginners like me. 10/10 would recommend - which is saying something, because before this, I would have given mountain biking a -1000/10 😬😳 Haha! Thank you, guys!!"
"I'm a rookie at MTB but with a lot of history riding around forests on bikes when younger, so I tend to tackle trails and features with zero knowledge, 100% instinct, so I decided to go get some professional instruction to see how I can up my game. The instructor was great and I really enjoyed the lesson and the chats we had on the climb up. I definitely discovered a few bad habits that I was able to pay attention to and hopefully have now rectified, and the instructor really helped me to understand how to take time to get off the bike and walk features, observing them from many angles before attempting them for the first time, picking a line according to my ability - this has given me a lot of confidence, culminating in me nailing a major rock roll the day after that I would have never tried before. Definitely worth it. Can't recommend enough."
“I had a great experience on a guided ride with Dialed In Cycling and would highly recommend them to riders of all levels! The customer service was exceptional, the knowledge was extensive and the instruction was top notch. As a first-time rider, I was taken down terrain that suited my level and felt I was pushed outside my comfort zone the perfect amount! I walked away buzzing!”
