Intermediate MTB trailsadvanced mountain biking session

Our intermediate level courses are specifically designed to push your boundaries and improve your skills on a mountain bike. We’ll progress you onto more technical terrains and enrich your skills. By the end of the session, you’ll feel even more confident and in control on tighter corners, larger gradient descents and when that large log or tree branch is in your pathway.

The techniques we’ll cover on the session all depends on the route and the day, but expect to get to grips with bunny hops, unweighting, wheel lifts and much more!

So if you feel you’ve reached a bit of a plateau in your skills, or you’ve been off the bike for a bit and want to refresh your skills, this intermediate half day mountain biking session is perfect for you.

Advanced MTB trails

Not for the faint-hearted or ill-practised, our advanced mountain bike trails in Cornwall will test your endurance, fitness and skills to their absolute limit, all on some of Cornwall’s most prestigious trails and courses.

The course takes place on some of our must rugged, rocky and technical terrain and will demand everything you and your MTB have got – perfect for the serious riders. By the time you’ve finished this session, you’ll be able to take pretty much anything a mountain bike trail around the UK has to offer you.

Some of the teaching you’ll receive on this session includes stance and body positioning for optimum ascends and stability, techniques to improve speed, flow, balance and control plus a tonne of fun stuff including advanced bunny hops, wheel lifts, jumps and drops. Race face time!

Night rides

Fancy getting some serious kicks? Well, you can do all of the above, in the dark. Night rides offer a completely different perspective to the trails and make the whole experience even more hairy for those who take to their bike for thrills.

Give your trail techniques the ultimate test at high speed through the dark forests with nothing but your headlamps to light the trail in front of you.

Not for the faint-hearted or novice, this is the perfect opportunity for the hard-core MTB head to make the most of Cornwall’s trails with white knuckle, spine tingling thrills as standard.

Mountain bikes we use

Like all cyclists we’re pretty geeky and particular when it comes to our kit and choice of ride. All our mountain bikes on offer, whether for novices or advanced courses are Kona mountain bikes.

Kona have been championing free-riding, cyclo-cross and downhill mountain biking since the 1990’s. Which means, they’ve had plenty of time to perfect their rides. We keep our bikes in tip-top condition too with regular servicing and maintenance so you’re guaranteed top performance from your ride when you take on one of our trails. 

Staying Safe Whilst Having Fun

A priority at Era Adventures, is ensuring you stay safe whilst having an awesome time. We’ll provide you with a cycling helmet when you come to do a session to keep you safe on the trails.
