Hone your skills with CycleActive at TwentyFour12

BikeRadar skills expert heading to Plymouth

BikeRadar and What Mountain Bike skills guru Chris Ford will be heading to the Bontrager TwentyFour12 in Plymouth later this month to run a series of skills clinics.


Chris and his CycleActive instructors will be on hand at Newnham Park from 25-26 July to deliver training to youngsters and adults alike. 

“The success of the Junior Skills Arena at BikeRadar Live was so great, we wanted to do the same for Trek/Bontrager at another top event,” said Chris. “It’s a family-friendly environment so it’s a great place to give youngsters a chance to really improve their riding – getting to grips with lots of core skills and having as much fun as possible in the process.” 

The Adult Skills Clinics will help people address key issues in their riding or racing – whether it’s improving balance, braking, bunny hops or jumping. If you’re going to the event, you can email questions in advance to rich@cycleactive.co.uk.

If you can’t make it to the event but still want your skills problems analysed, explained and covered on BikeRadar in one of our regular Skills Q&A features, email us at bikeradar@bikeradar.com and we’ll pass your queries on to the CycleActive team.


The Bontrager TwentyFour12 is an endurance mountain bike race held at Newnham Park in Plymouth, a former World Cup venue. There’s a 24-hour challenge and two 12-hour options, one starting at midday and one at midnight. For details, see www.twentyfour12.com.
