Calling all mountain bikers…. Want to improve your reflexes and reaction to varying terrain? Work on picking the best line through and around obstacles? Pump over some bumps…. Why not join us for our River SUP Adventure. You’ll learn the basics of river hydrology and paddle strokes and how to navigate the river safely then get plenty of time to practise.
