For this Next Step Mountain Biking Skills course participants must be competent on a mountain bike.
This Next Step Mountain Biking Skills course will involve a brief refresher course located at Tollymore National Outdoor Centre before heading out onto local mountain biking trails.
Check out our video clip on YouTube to give you an idea of what our mountain biking skills course looks like before you come to the Centre.
This Next Step Mountain Biking Skills course is ideal for those who have experience of mountain biking and wish to gain an insight into a range of skills that will improve your off road riding. You probably have a bike, and are keen to develop your skills further. You should have a reasonable level of fitness and be a confident biker.
Hardtail mountain bikes, helmets, back packs and gloves may be borrowed from our extensive stores. We advise you not to rush out and buy kit for the course, but use it as a chance to find out what would best suit your needs. You are encouraged to bring your own mountain bike and personal kit. You should bring the following:
If you have items such as a bike repair kit, pump and basic tool kit, please bring them along.
Full day courses include sumptuous packed lunch and one of our famous choc brownies or flapjacks – just what you’ll need for day out on the bike!
Your course is a one day course, so accommodation is not provided. However, we do have changing rooms, showers and lockers available for your use.
We can offer you a nights’ accommodation and breakfast either at the beginning or end of a course for an extra £26.50 per person. This is a great way to further enhance your time at Tollymore and savour the beautiful majestic setting that the Centre has to offer.
Our catering is first class, noted both for the quality and quantity of the food that we provide. Your course is catered, so you will be provided with a packed lunch for the day. You may however wish to bring your own personal snack food for use during the course. You can fill a flask with tea or coffee at the Centre if required.

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.
We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.
Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.
How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
