Tom Dibley - Alliance MTB Mountain Bike Coach

Tom Dibley - Alliance MTB South

I’m Tom, a product of the bike trade having worked in bike shops and various other cycle-related roles in the UK and the States for 20 years. I’m a sponge of bike knowledge and in my 20+ years of mountain biking, have picked up a skill or two.
Most importantly, it’s not what a MTB coach can do on a bike, but what they can get you doing on a bike that counts. Come and visit me in Dorset to unlock the skills you need to ride trails confidently without hesitation in a controlled environment.
