You have taken our trial course, or you have done some mountain biking before, or are very used to riding a regular bike.

  • Positioning on the bike.
  • Use of “dropper post”.
  • Front wheel lift, brake technique, shifting, simple cornering.
  • Cycle uphill and downhill.
  • Great cycling on moderately difficult trails.
  • For adults of all ages or for young people accompanied by an adult.
  • Division into smaller groups according to previous experience.
  • We recommend wearing knee pads, which are available in our on-site shop or can be rented when booking.
  • Rent a mountain bike during the course, this year’s model and in top condition. You can choose between a mountain bike with front suspension only or one with both front and rear suspension, a little more comfortable and safer.
  • Location of the course: Meeting point is Mountainbikeskolan / Källtorp, Ältavägen 105 in Nacka. We have a certain number of parking spaces that are free for course participants. Bus 401 stops just outside the farm.
  • Schedule: Your course runs between 10:00 and 15:00. If you arrive a little earlier, about 20 minutes, there is breakfast, coffee and sandwiches, and you have time to arrange your rental bike.

    The course starts at 10.00 with assembly and review of the day’s schedule and then we cycle off for technique training. Back for lunch at 12.15 when we eat vegetarian and locally produced food from Kafé Källtorp. At 13:00, we’ll go on a lovely trail run to put all the tech tips into practice. We are back at the mountain bike school at 15.00 to summarize the day over a coffee.
  • Make new cycling friends: During the course you will get to know other students. We arrange for everyone who wants to sign up to a ‘buddy list’. There are usually groups on Facebook or WhatsApp so that you can stay in touch with your group and meet up for mountain biking even after the course.
  • What to bring to the course: T-shirt, sweater or windbreaker, short or long pants. Gym, street or walking shoes. Water bottle for bike, alt. backpack with a water bottle. Gloves can be useful.

    We have everything we need to fix punctures and other potential problems on your bike during the course.

    Good if you use platform pedals, not “click-in” pedals on the course, it is easier to learn the correct technique then. You can borrow pedals from us or buy them on site. We’ll help you switch pedals if you want.

    Dropper post, it is very good if you have a dropper post on your bike. If you have an older bike, it may be better to rent one. All reasonably modern bikes can be ridden well.
  • 10% in the shop for course participants: The mountain bike school has a shop with cycling equipment such as helmets, arm and knee protectors, gloves, tubes, tires, pumps, etc. You as a course participant have a 10% discount on everything in the shop during the course day. The mountain bike school is a Trek dealer and has a wide range of rental bikes of all Trek mountain bike models.

The Mountain Bike School organizes cycling events and dinners for companies and groups who enjoy good food and great cycling.
