Ebike Skills Coaching at Bike & Boot

Why Choose Us?

Here at True North we’ve been messing about, riding and racing as long as we can remember and its taken us to some of the best places on earth and met some of ‘the’ best people.

We’ve had many up’s as well as down’s but in the end its just a big learning curve, but its experience we love to pass on. 

Here at our base at Bike & Boot our training courses are based around natural riding terrain as that is what we have in abundance. 

We don’t have from the door an abundance of artificially groomed trails or bike parks to play with, but if you do want to improve your skills on variety of trails and features then this is the place for you.

We use portable training apparatus like manual machines and coaching ramps to allow progression in a controlled environment before we set out which allows effective coaching repetition combined with slow motion technology also aids a clear understanding and insight into your riding so you can visually identify where you’ve got it nailed or where you might need some improvement.

What you'll Learn

Our range of ebike mountain bike courses suit riders of all abilities from those new to mountain biking through to experienced riders wanting to develop specific skills.

You might be a beginner looking to get into mountain biking , or for advanced riders looking to improve their technique, speed and technical performance for all round riding or for improving those stage times for improved race results.

From our years of experience through racing at high level at EWS races and gravity enduro racing in the UK along with our coaching experience we’d like to think we are well trained to pass on our understanding the specific principles and requirements for riding e- mountain bikes so our courses are developed with these techniques in mind. 

We utilise many core skills and techniques specific to e-bikes to help you understand and learn the fundamentals, below are just some of these…

  • Bike set up, including tyre choice, correct pressures, functionality of the controls and suspension set-up
  • Understanding all the modes and how to use the gearing appropriately.
  • Utilising modes efficiently to increase battery life and improve power delivery through pedalling efficiency 
  • How body positioning and weight transfer is so important, pressure through your pedals and controlling speed, adopting flow on a trail to bring out speed and minimise risk of it going wrong. 
  • Using features on a trail to aid grip and control
  • Why wheelies and manuals aren’t just for showboating and you’ll be surprised by the end of the day what you can achieve.
  • How to control traction, especially on technical climbs and understanding the dynamics of body, feet and head positioning in all aspects of riding
  • Improving overall bike handling and skill through both physical and mental training approach.

Had amazing coaching day with Jaime. Set our bikes up- checked tyre pressure suspension. Jaime is a great teacher- has ability to set it at a level that is perfect – not too easy but enough to test you and push your boundaries in a safe environment. Worth every penny. We had great day. Can’t wait to come back and do tour guiding with Jaime.

Five of us had a fabulous guided weekend e-mountain biking. We had no previous experience, so it was great to have Barney with us to explain how the bikes worked, sort out the route and to talk us through how to approach all the different terrain. The bikes were fantastic, in tip-top condition and checked over each day. Barney was super; very calm and helpful, allowing each of us to go at our own pace. He had lots of good stories about the Peak District too. We would recommend True North wholeheartedly.

Just had our 2nd annual MTB coaching day with True North Adventures. I’ve learnt loads about bike handling and how to tackle technical routes easily and safely. It’s given me more confidence and motivation. Jamie is an excellent coach and he even managed to catch me before I fell into the hedgerow. Skillz or what!
