    I booked a one 2 one session with Marmalade after riding out on my own on the South Downs for a few months. I thought I might need some input on keeping safe and best practice as I had no other experience.

    Sean and the team at Marmalade have been fantastic before , during and after the session. I honestly felt like I had been part of their world for years. No judgement on my fitness level and the session was all about me and how I ride and maximising the enjoyment.
    I picked up and put into practice lots of helpful tips and skills and had a great day…

    I also got lots of advice on a new bike, as I was looking to upgrade from a budget bike and now going out with confidence and looking forward to more sessions and hopefully some group rides in the future.

    I honestly cannot recommend this highly enough….. It has definitely increased my ‘Smile Factor’.

    I booked on to the south downs 1-2-1 but this is my Third 1-2-1 with Sean. Sean has intimate knowledge of this area and tailors to the session to what the rider wants to do and their abilities. Sean has the ability to make you feel relaxed in his company and makes the session fun.

    Sean has excellent bike knowledge, so can also help you get a perfect setup for your steed and give excellent tips for trail skills. (testament to how fast he shreds it down)

    Its always a pleasure riding with Marmalade and would fully recommend this to anyone! Even for group ride sessions also.

    Met up with Sean Howell of Marmalade MTB yesterday for a coaching day in the south downs. He made me feel at ease all day and is a fantastic coach. We went through my bike and sorted out some set up issues which was causing confidence problems with my riding, I was running my tyre pressures too high and my front shock was pumped up to 250psi when it should have been 130psi. He said my attack positions were spot on already so i spent the day learning climbing techniques, turning, descent and single track techniques. I now know how to attack routed sections properly and small drop offs, I feel a lot faster already. Now all I have to do is keep practicing what he has taught me, it’s all down hill from here lol.

    If you havent already I highly recommend coaching days with Marmalade MTB.

    Fantastic day out with Sean who I am happy to call a new Buddy.

  4. Paul Nulty

    A really fun few hours with Sean riding round the Surrey Hills. He’s got great knowledge of the area and was super helpful. The tips he gave about riding position and bike set-up were invaluable.

    The money spent riding with Sean is probably better value investment than any gadget or bike upgrade!

  5. Sue Ferguson

    A whole jar of Marmalade fun! We celebrated Bruce’s 60th birthday in the Surrey Hills. We were with Jim in the morning to develop some skills and techniques, and then Sean came along in the afternoon too for some guided trail riding. Jim’s coaching was spot on, and with plenty of chances to practise. The afternoon trails were just great, swooping from one single track to another – some technical and rooty stuff with smooth fast tracks too. Oh yes a bit of climbing built in!!

    Thank you so much both of you, the day was just as I had asked for and we will be back!
    I will be flying the Marmalade flag!

    Great day out with Sean who showed us new trails and gave us some excellent tips for riding faster with more confidence!

  7. Seb Potiriadis

    A jar full of shred, hips loosened, shoulders following head round corners, tyres ripping. A great day of riding. New trails learned…. The best compliment we can give is that we are planning to come back for another trip.

  8. Ian Budden

    I had a 121 session with Sean in the Surrey Hills. Sean is a thoughtful and encouraging guide, showed me some great trails and gave lots of brilliant advice that improved my riding straight off.

    I’d recommend this whole heartedly. Really good experience… Thanks Sean!

  9. Katrian Graham

    We spent 3hrs 1-2-1 with Sean in the Surrey Hills. My girlfriend was not very confident on her new MTB and hadn’t done any off road riding before, she was very apprehensive. Sean took us through bike setup and explained what we would be doing before setting off. We started with some wide easy trails with my girlfriend learning some basic riding skills to build confidence. Sean went through how to position yourself on the bike to ensure maximum control and talked through braking techniques with a demonstration. As my girlfriends confidence built we started heading down some single track trails. Sean cycled behind my girlfriend to provide support and instruction. By the end of the 3 hrs she road down Barry knows best which was far beyond my expectation. Sean was excellent, knowledgeable and ensured we got the most our of the day. Could not recommend him highly enough and will be riding with him again.

  10. peppy.mudstockings

    After a fab skills session with Jim a couple of months ago I decided to treat myself to a guided 1-2-1 with Sean at Stanmer Park, and what a treat it was!
    As a self confessed trail junkie I was a little unsure when Sean suggested a little XC cruise out along a section of the South Downs but wow, the sunshine, the views, the landscape were amazing! So much so that it’s persuaded me to sign up for an actual XC ride (never thought that would happen). His knowledge of the area and the bikes is fantastic, pointing out sights along the way, and doing trailside maintenence when my gears started playing up.
    The overall experience is friendly, professional and most importantly oodles of fun. I can’t recommend these guys enough and would not hesitate to do book again – infact I already have!!!

  11. Sam Harris Dean

    We had a fantastic day out with Sean. Not sure who enjoyed it more, two 11 year old boys or this 50+ year old man. Sean was great fun and a great teacher. We are all looking forward to doing it again. Thank you for everything. Sam

  12. Phill Heaty

    Fab day out in the Surrey Hills with Sean the downs make the ups worth it…nice and chilled with something for every one fully recommend it

  13. Gareth Jones

    Sean spent time with my 5 and 8yr olds helping them with their technique before a bespoke trip through beautiful Houghton Forest – an amazing day can’t thanks Marmalade enough

  14. Ross Smart

    Booked a session with Sean for myself and a friend to ride part of the South Downs. Although keen bikers, we’d never done anything like this before and were both a bit apprehensive but Sean put together a brilliant bespoke experience for us. The ride was really well suited to our level and ability and Sean took great care to ensure that the ride was fun and a great introduction to the South Downs. Sean made it very clear that the ride was at our pace and we could do as much or as little as we wished with stops as and when we decided and we never felt rushed along. Sean’s knowledge of the area was brilliant and he was very informative in pointing out other areas we could ride without a guide should we wish to visit again. We had an excellent day and even made a pit stop for a bit of lunch – not even the at times torrential rain could dampen our spirits! Overall would 100% recommend booking a 1-2-1, we are already looking to do it again.
