AwesomeMTB is ran by myself, Mini Mansell.

MIAS Level 5 mountain bike coach and tutor with QCF level 3. A member of the Association of British Cycling Coaches (ABCC) and a member of The association of mountain bike guides (AMBG)

I also have the Mountain Bike Expedition  and Night Ride Leader qualifications.

And am also a qualified BASI level 2 snowboard instructor and SSE Ski instructor with many seasons experience in the Italian Alps plus a CWI Climbing instructor.  I have given more than 20,000 hours of tuition and am very experienced in mountain environments, leading, tutoring and running courses.

This gives you the confidence that I can safely lead my clients around the interesting, challenging and sometimes demanding areas of the Peak District.

The primary aim of the rides and courses are to follow the structure of SEL:

  • Safety
  • Enjoyment
  • Learning

I will lead a ride in a safe manner, I will ensure its enjoyable and you will learn to control your bike during the ride.

I will focus on:

  • Use of gears, brakes, steering, suspension
  • Stance, posture and body positioning
  • Observation and reading terrain features

You will have an upgraded knowledge of how your bike works and where to place your body for different types of terrain, this will improve your climbing, your descents and your level of fun while out on your bike.

A skillful knowledgeable rider is a stress free rider and a stress free rider is a happier and safer rider.
