Our taster sessions are tailored to suit your needs. We also provide an introduction to mountain biking focusing on the fundamental elements of bike control. Fun and rewarding sessions that take you through the very basics of riding a bike. From fixing a puncture, to being comfortable on your bike and looking after your equipment, these sessions offer a perfect taster for any beginner, school or community group.
Have you heard of Dr. Bike sessions? If not, these are 1-4 hour open bike repair clinic’s where all minor bike repairs (punctures, gears, brakes, etc)are fixed for free. We use a professional bike mechanic to run the Dr. Bike sessions and have run a number of these sessions for Oldham and Trafford Councils already. Alongside the repairs the mechanic teaches essential bike safety checks before going out on your bike and basic bike repairs with a friendly and welcoming approach. We can also add in a track-pump challenge and track-stand challenge to add competitive element whilst improving bike skills.
Inspire the next generation with an inspirational Dirt Factory presentation.

We can cover a host of topics such as; business development, marketing, social media, logo design and raising finance – or any particular business topic you may be covering within your school, college or organisation.
