New Coaching Partnership

Posted on: 01/08/2018 at 12:00pm

Beics Brenin are excited to announce a new partnership for the provision of training and coaching at Coed y Brenin Forest Park.

From 1st August 2018 Beics Brenin will team up with Pedal MTB to extend and diversify the MTB skills coaching and teaching offered from the location.

Pedal MTB will now offer their range of coaching and training packages including their Core SkillsTech and Refine courses at Coed y Brenin.  Alongside the British Cycling MTB Leadership Level 2 Training and Assesment, they will also begin to offer their exciting new Trailsmart training courses that provide a ‘whole picture’ approach to the essential skills needed for good mountain biking; including primary knowledge for good riding, bike care and trail safety.  We are also eagerly anticipating the roll-out of their e-bike specific training which will include an e-bike core skills and an e-bike specific version of Trailsmart.

Coed y Brenin provides the perfect location for Pedal MTB to deliver the very best coaching. As the UK’s original trail centre Coed y Brenin has been in development for over 25 years and is deeply entwined with the history of mountain biking here. With a vast trail network offering graded trails for riders of all abilities that include everything from classic beginner trails like the popular Minortaur to epic challenges like The Dragon’s Back and The Beast. In addition to the trail network the park boasts a dedicated skills area Y FFowdri which provides a toolbox of riding challenges and short graded trail sections that is ideal for training purposes, creating a playground for riders to explore and expand their skills repertoire under the watchful eyes of their qualified coach.

The trails of Coed y Brenin provide true, year-round, all-weather riding and it’s purpose built visitor centre offers an ideal base for coaching activity. With a spacious cafe, showers, changing and bike wash, Not forgetting of course Beics Brenin bike shop and bike hire, (in our opinion) the best trail-head bike store in the UK, stocked to the roof with all your ride essentials and a few luxury items to boot. Clearly a winning combination that’s rocket fuel for riding progress.

We first worked with Pedal MTB’s Al Seaton on the delivery of the successful Temtiwr Women’s event in 2017 so we had no doubts in his abilities as a coach. When he teamed up with Ed Roberts who was well known to us from his EWS racing and his coaching activities we knew the outcome would be something exciting. Both Ed and Al have enthusiastic and infectious personalities and a wealth of expertise to share, we know they will make great partners to expand the official MTB coaching provision at Coed y Brenin.

Pedal will offer their range of MTB skills courses and training on timetabled course dates throughout the year alongside individual and bespoke coaching and coaching for families. You can learn all about their offering or get in contact with Ed and Al to discuss your coaching needs via the Pedal MTB website.

Pedal MTB join Wheelism as Beics Brenin’s only official recognised Coed y Brenin MTB Coaching and Training partners.
