Coaching and Guiding

Our shop grew from our operations on the trail. First Dirt School and then more recently Tweed Valley Guides. 

Our rider first focus runs through everything we do and if you're looking for some training, coaching, tuition or guiding around Glentress, Innerleithen and the Tweed Valley to go along with the great products that we stock, then you've come to the right place.  

Dirt School Mountain Bike Coaching

The founders of BASE College and at the front edge of mountain bike technique for over a decade, Dirt School is the place to go for mountain bike lessons in the UK. Working with MBR Magazine, Scottish Cycling, Borders College, MBCUK and countless others, our highly qualified and award winning coaches offer everything from Kids Camps to private lessons, beginner skills days to professional tuition for the world's fastest racers. 

Tweed Valley Guides

Pulling on the 12 years of experience coaching, developing leadership skills and tutoring and qualifying fellow coaches and guides at Dirt School, we launched Tweed Valley Guides in the summer of 2019. You can choose from our range of single guiding trips for individuals, corporate groups and families or book a private Guide just for you. We welcome all levels and we select the best trails for you given your experience, skill level and how much you want to explore. Add in a hire or demo kids, mountain bike or eMTB from us too for the ultimate Tweed Valley riding experience. Take the guess work out of your trip and guarantee the gold with us today.
