My Final Instructor Course

Ray Mazey
Providing Mountain Bike Training Courses From 2002 - 2014
A Great But Also A Sad Day.  
My Last Instructor Course  14th &15th May 2014
I Will Continue To Provide Mountain Bike Maintenance Courses 

Thanks a lot fella's for the feedback below.

Can I firstly say a big thank you to you for a very enjoyable and extremely educational 2 days last week. I think we all learnt an awful lot on both days and we will continue to pass your training techniques onto plenty more young and old cyclists in the future.  

I hope you enjoy your retirement from the  leadership courses but continue to pass your skills and expertise on to others. 
          Thanks Ray - Looking forward to leading my first ride. Your course has definitely given me the tools    and confidence to go forwards.

Dear Ray,

I cannot find the words to describe my feelings after these two amazing days of your course. No, I’m not trying to make you feel nice, but honestly I’m telling you my truth: these two days was the most useful (but also enjoyable) days in my mountain bike life!

Thank you.



ps. I’m sending the photo with my regards to all the wonderful team.

The thing  I will miss without doubt when I finish providing the Instructor Courses, is that I will miss meeting such nice / genuine people. Picture above from Instructor Course on 9/10 April 2014

Cycle Helmet ID

Everything is OK until something goes wrong.

When off road riding, especially when we are alone, we should really consider our safety and minimise risk as much as possible.

Wearing a cycle helmet is a must, and body armour is becoming increasingly more common, even for xc riders.

Leaving your route with a responsible person and maybe regular contact with them, should also be seriously considered.

Carrying ID is better than nothing. However, wearing ID with any details of any medical problems is even better.  Take a look at this article, in which I recommend the helmet type ID -
