Hi Iam from Preston in Lancashire and new to MTB. I have been to Coed Llandega blue trail, and a few other spots - just trying to gain confidence and better myself at MTB. Plan to attend a good beginners instruction day course. Current ride is Apollo, but now saving up for my On One 456 Carbon !! cant wait. Hope to meet alot of great people on here and gain alot of knowledge and tips.
Fran

Hi back atcha from N.Wales.

The courses at 'Degla are said to pretty good.

And it's a great place to learn anyways.

Have a good one and welcome to our fold.

My first course was up at Rivington with the MBI lot - they were lovely and I had a really great time. You've got great riding up North!

Hiya
not rode Healey Nab yet - too early for that yet - need to build more confidence . Set myself a good few months yet of hard saving before I get my 456 Carbon, my current bike is waaaaaayyyy to heavy!

why the carbon over the ally? ally will take the (newbie knocks) without possibly being destroyed by an unlucky fall ... my mates carbon frame took a knock and it was a write off disgusted.gif .... or you could just buy what ya want and tell me to keep me beak out laugh.gif
