As we are a business based on passion, we have decided take a deep refreshing breath, turn back the clock and invest more time in the sport and recreation we love and which brought us to where we stand today - Mountain Biking. Ok, so we’ve been running TORQ Inspirational Weeks in the French Pyrenees and Southern Spain since 2005, but now we’re turning our attentions closer to home – to our own back yard in fact. Of course we’re still running our Fitness Weeks abroad, they’re astounding experiences, but you should see our back yard?
So what makes TORQ’s Mountain Biking experience unique? Well, we’re based in Shropshire for starters. Where’s that? If you don’t know, this quite nicely illustrates our point. The Long Mynd is England’s ‘Secret Garden’ and we adore it. Despite its National Park status, not many people know about it, so with the exception of a few other privileged folk, we have the place pretty much to ourselves.
And then there are your guides. TORQ’s Matt Hart and Anthony Roland have ridden and raced Mountain Bikes to the highest level. The sport is in their blood. Both have Sports Science/Coaching degrees and have OTC Technical Mountain Bike Leaders Awards. Matt is also a British Cycling qualified coach and Anthony holds a Sports Leaders UK award and numerous other coaching qualifications. Both Anthony and Matt have recently been trained under the wing of the CTC to become qualified Mountain Bike skills coaches.
Finally, if we’re still not unique enough for you, just think about the core of TORQ’s business. TORQ is a Fitness Consultancy, so we coach Mountain Bikers to attain their highest possible performance standards. This means that we can offer the enthusiastic Mountain Biker absolutely everything. For instance, you might want a fitness test in the morning followed by a guided ride and technical skills training in the afternoon.
