E-mountainbike riding skills training

  • With the right technique
    Flying high

More freedom with the right technique

On the one-day course you will learn about the special riding performance of an e-mountainbike and how to improve your riding skills: from correct braking and proper posture on an e-MTB through to successful riding on any terrain. With a combination of theory, practice, and a tour though the natural surroundings of the Emmental valley, our two experts will teach you how to ride your e-bike safely.

The day of the course does not only consist of e-bike training. The guided tour of the factory gives you with a glimpse behind the scenes of the e-bike pioneer FLYER. You will also be looked after in culinary terms. The FLYER e-mountainbike riding skills course is suitable for all levels from beginner to experienced biker. We also offer a Ladies Only course.

About the programme

Our instructors

Dominik Hug, mountain bike instructor with federal certificate and founder of the "Bikebuebe" bike school

"The popular opinion is that "anyone can ride a bike", which is partly true and a good basic prerequisite. However, the handling of the E-MTB differs from that of a normal everyday bike. You have to learn how to use the motor assistance. For many long-time cyclists, bad habits have crept in. This may have to do with a lack of understanding of the correct riding technique, or simply because bikes have evolved enormously in recent years. Even experienced riders always get an "aha" experience with me and can benefit from tips and tricks. The better the understanding of one's own riding technique, the more safety and riding fun on the road."

Daniel Krebs, Swiss Cycling Guide and founder of the Bikeschool-Emmental

"Newcomers as well as bikers with many years of experience benefit from the course. Our Swiss Cycling coaches are trained in such a way that they can individually challenge and support the participants. Through targeted coaching, the basic MTB skills are refreshed and consolidated. We learn, for example, riding positions on the bike, safe braking or how to ride corners cleanly. This helps participants gain confidence in themselves and their riding style. This increases the fun factor on the trail and improves safety."
