HUGH GRAHAM, Bellaghy
Taking up mountain biking 6 years ago, I never imagined that I would be having as much fun or riding the challenging trails that I am today. As a beginner, FirstTracksMTB.com helped me with the fundamentals of mountain biking – and now as I improve, they are pushing me beyond my goals by introducing more difficult yet achievable skills. These include; drop offs, jumping, riding technical trails and I have even entered the world of enduro racing!
With the help of FirstTracksMTB.com I feel that I am continuing to improve, not just plateau at a certain level. The biggest improvement in my riding was achieved when they designed and built a pump track in my own back garden. This enables me to practice the skills they have taught me so they become a reaction, not a thought when out on the trails.
More importantly, my family have as much fun as me (maybe not quite as much fun!) riding around the pump track. I am now able to share my hobby and teach my children the mountain bike skills I have learned with the help of FirstTracksMTB.com.

Get yourself booked onto a Glyn O’Brien guiding day on some of the best trails in the World! Glyn took Chain Reaction Cycles / Nukeproof team riders Sam HIll, Matt Simmonds and Joe Smith out to ride the new trails and we had a fantastic day. The riding is top notch, as is Glyn – who is an amazing rider himself and a top bloke. You will have an amazing time:)
RICHIE BYRNE, EPIC MTB President, Dublin
As the President of Ireland’s most successful mountain bike club, I am always trying to find ways to improve my riders, especially the women, as they can often be neglected.
I contacted Glyn at FirstTracksMTB.com as I knew he was the man to help us out and he was a real Pro, his methods and his whole demeanour were first class and our ladies came away with loads of tips and advice on how to go faster. Glyn is number 1 on our list of coaches and he never fails to improve the skills of anybody who rides with him.

How to ride the fantastic trails at Rostrevor when you don’thave a suitable bike? Well for me it was as easy as a single phone call to FirstTracksMTB.com who fixed my family and I up with everything that we needed for a great day out – top quality bikes, helmets, gloves and even water bottles! Hiring bikes gave us the chance to get out there and give it a go – we’ve not looked back since.
