Stop taking rubbish photos. 2day courses with professional photographer Dom Worrall.
Riding a mountain bike puts you in some stunning locations with some of your best friends, the memories of which never disappear and never fail to motivate you to ride your bike. One of the first things you want to do after a memorable ride is to check your photographs. When those photographs don’t live up to your expectations, don’t give the routes, riding or location the justice you think they deserve leaving you disappointed wishing you had a better more accurate memento of the day then a “Stop taking rubbish photos” course can help you sort that out.

Don't want a crass commercial English Christmas?
Are you sick of having Christmas rammed down your throat from October on the television, in the shops, in the streets, want to get away from all that , experience a different kind of Christmas, one that involves riding your bike in an environment where Christmas isn’t quite so in your face.
If any of the above sounds familiar or you just yearn something different this Christmas with like minded people then this is a the option for you. Here in the back water of Spain an Almanzora Christmas is taken at a much more relaxed pace, free of the stress which accompanies that time of year in the U.K..No crowds, no hassle, just a small celebration and plenty of riding.
Because we feel the same about Christmas and given the fact we had such a great time last year we will remain open the entire Christmas and New Year period. View our gallery for Christmas 2009, New Year 2010 and you will see this time of year usually throws up some excellent weather and great riding conditions.
We will be limiting the number of guests for this period so interested parties should contact us as soon as possible.
