I was approached by Andy the owner of Ridelines Mountain Bike Tuition to take some pictures for their *New* website - yet to be launched.
It was a overcast day with heavy rain due after lunch so we headed for the hills around Innerleithen. Andy brought along his team of instructors Alisa, Tara, Jess and a small group of riders to have a mountain bike session around some of the local trails.
Andy's approach to his MTB courses maybe a wee bit different to others, it was extremely Fun with a capital 'F'.
Even though I didn't take part I felt that the day was friendly, relaxed and the main aim was for everyone to enjoy themselves, leaving with more knowledge and confidence on your bike.
The Ridelines team really know their stuff, encouraging and teaching the riders was paramount as well as teaching them the skills needed for their own ability.
Once the ride had finished, rain had well and truly set in and we were all drenched. We headed off for an awesome lunch at the Coffee House No1 Peebles Rd, where we all warmed up by the open fire, shared tips, looked at the map and had a good feed.
If your a visitor to Innerleithen or a local needing some biking tuition, my advice would be get in touch with Andy asap!
