Low-Ropes-and-Biking-Leader-Header

A full day course which combines our Low Ropes Induction and Biking Leader Induction in one day. Staff can still book onto the morning and afternoon sessions separately however it gives the opportunity for those who require both courses for their visit and want to compress this into one day.

The Low Ropes Induction (morning session):

The Low Ropes course is one of the most popular activities here at Thornbridge Outdoors with both day and residential groups, young and old alike.

In order to be able to use the Low Ropes course with a group, we require staff to have attended an induction course here with our instructors.

  • Familiarising yourself with the Low Ropes course itself (by having a go!)
  • Different ideas to make the course more enjoyable for your groups
  • A risk assessment for the course

The Biking Leader Induction (afternoon session):

Biking is a popular activity here with our fleet of mountain bikes, trike, accessible trikes and karts, onsite ‘Trike and Bike Trail’ and easy access to the Monsal Trail. These courses equip visiting staff to lead safe and fun biking sessions using our onsite ‘Trike and Bike Trail’ and the Monsal Trail. Candidates should be able to ride a bike before attending the course.

  • Route familiarisation
  • Bike fitting
  • Helmets and clothing
  • Riding – the basics
  • Ride risk assessment
  • Coaching hints and tips

9.30am – 12.30pm
