Girls on Bikes – MTB Workshop

August 4, 2014 at 4:30
Posted by Rachael Woolston

Always fancied trying off road mountain biking but been too scared to try? Our first time mountain bikers discovered just how much fun it is during our specialist workshop last weekend as part of our#fitbitchrideseries workshop

Here’s what they had to say about it:

Nicky Binning, Improvers Workshop 

‘It was awesome!! Mark was patient, practical and tailored his approach to suit the group. A great way to build confidence and “have a go” Really enjoyed, lots of fun, great value for money and it’s inspired me. Can’t wait to get out on the trails again.’

Debbie King, Beginners Workshop

‘I loved it! I was so nervous about going, but everyone was so lovely and supportive and Mark was brilliant. It was a great couple of hours.’


If you are interested in future workshops, and mountain biking or road biking we have a free Fitbitch Ride community training for events. It doesn’t matter WHAT level you are, only that you are committed to training for events.

Our next workshop will be for road biking where you will learn how to ride in a peloton…and perhaps more importantly, how to fix a puncture!

You’ve never run before or have not run for a very long time? This course is for you helping you to build your distance and confidence.

Run Fit

This class uses resistance band and body weight exercises to help you get stronger for running and is combined with short two – four minute running intervals to help you either build your distance or speed, depending on what you want to work on. Fun, inclusive, supportive. (Combine with Learn to Run 5km to get two sessions per week absolutely free).

Run Rehab

If you regularly suffer from injuries, are recovering from one or always suffer from niggles, then this course is for you. Six or eight week courses that focus on building strength and stability in the core, gluteal muscles and legs. We use resistance bands, TRX, weights and incorporate yoga for runners stretches and myofascial release. Six or eight week blocks, we do not accept drop ins on these courses.

Yoga for Runners

Suitable for all levels, including total beginners, our yoga classes are specifically aimed at those who run/cycle or are active. Mat based most of the class involves using props to help you maximise the release of your muscles.

It means that you may run something like 200m, 400m, 600m, and then 400m, 200m with a rest in between. We challenge you to work outside your comfort zone in order to improve your overall speed.  Each session is different and we also work on on the mental techniques to help you become comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. Perfect if you are aiming for a personal best on a parkrun, 10km, half marathon or marathon.
