Riding berms

Gisburn Forest Skills with Ed Oxley from Whitenosugar Productions on Vimeo.

This is the first in a series of short skills videos shot on the new trails at Gisburn Forest. I’ve tried to keep it clear and simple in the videos to give a flavour of the skills shown. If you want to know more, the best thing to do is come for a skills session. Have a look at the courses that I offer at Gisburn which use the trails you see proactol dosage in these videos.

I’ve been running skills courses at Gisburn for as long as the trails have been there. It’s great to see the place evolving with new sections into one of the UK’s top trail centres. I run the Stop Crashing courses here as well as Flow and Jumps for Dads.

The video was shot and edited by Tim from Whitenosugar Productions. I’ve made a few videos with Tim before including Edventure, Hurstwood Mountain Bike Trail and Keep it Local.

Hebden Half Days on the new blue trail

Hurstwood Mountain Bike Trail from Whitenosugar Productions on Vimeo.

Here’s the latest film from Whitenosugar featuring Rowan Sorrel the trail designer, Craig Robertson from Ride On bike shop and me. The trail we’re riding is a new blue grade run not far from Hebden Bridge. It is really fun to ride and makes a great place for running ‘Stop Crashing’ level courses. It’s a great place for learning or revising the basics of body position, cornering, braking and riding with control and flow. There are half day courses at Hurstwood this autumn and winter. Check the ‘Stop Crashing’ tab in the courses menu above.


You can never have too many bikes, or too many wheel sizes, even on just the one ride.

This film was specially made by Whitenosugar Productions for the Kendal Mountain Festival bike night, which I presented last Friday. It was great to show this, along with a couple of my other videos, to the sold out crowd of 500 people. I was also interviewing legendary mountain bike film maker Clay Porter, and it was quite funny having my films up there on screen alongside clips of his movies. I think we held our own and I love this edit that Tim Royle made of my ‘spoof ‘ride from Hebden Bridge to Kendal. Hope you enjoy it.
