Basic for Ladies EN
Testosterone Free Skills Days Set
Who is it for?
The course curriculum is same as Basic 1, 2,& 3
We just recognised that although there is no differences in the way men and women ride mountain bikes women have a lot more self preservation than men we do cover fear, how to reduce it and work with it and the mental side more in women’s skills days but will do the same in normal skills days if needed. Just less perceive pressure. Sometimes the all male environment in a sport such as MTB is likely to create a testosterones fuel environment that not everyone feel comfortable with. For this reason we offer 2 sets of dates for Basic Skills Days 1,2&3 for ladies only.
