World Cup DH racer Katy Curd has joined forces with Pure Body Balance to offer weekend escapes – with a difference…

Pure Body Balance

Katy Curd’s expert advice is on hand at the Pure Body Balance weekenders – she’s one of the calmest and nicest people to learn from, as well as an insanely fast rider to watch!

The weekend retreats will be based in the Forest of Dean, staying in the luxury accommodation at Broad Rock and focusses on both trail time, and time off the bike.

Pure Body Balance

The Pure Body Balance weekends are as much about hitting the trails as they are getting your body and mind prepared.

The weekend will be lead by industry experts, Adrian Stokes and Karen Maidment – the faces behind Pure Body Balance. They have a vast amount of knowledge behind health and performance, and will help riders improve there, strength and health with a big focus around skills work on the trails.

  • Adrain Stokes will be there to work through key movement patterns, and will be giving you an insight to insider secrets for ultimate strength, balance and coordination on the bike.
  • Karen Maidment will guide you through the perfect post ride mountain bike specific yoga sessions as well sharing her knowledge about the key nutrition secrets needed for lasting out on those all day rides.
  • Jake Ireland, owner and technician at Sprung Suspension will be on hand to get that perfect bike set-up specifically for you, making your ride even smoother when ripping up the trails.
  • Katy Curd, professional mountain bike racer, will be there to help guide you through the skills on the bike – helping you build up your confidence and skills to maintain natural flow on any trails you ride.

This action packed weekend is perfectly balanced with timeout sessions including beautiful countryside walks, open fire cooking in the summer and log fires in the autumn, post ride yoga, massage therapy and nutrition workshops to maximise your health on and off the bike!

Pure Body Balance

A weekend away like this is a great reset – helping riders over come plateaus they may have reached. Looking after your body has a big effect on how you ride – Pure Body Balance aims to get everything in sync.

The escape venue has been handpicked by the team, featuring state of the art luxury with MTB specific functionality (drying room and bike lock up). Nestled adjacent to the Offa’s Dyke Path and a stone’s throw from the clifftops of the Wye Valley, Broad Rock is perfectly placed for an epic day’s riding at The Forest of Dean.
The Forest of Dean offers one of the most extensive and highly praised trail networks in the UK.  Whether it’s the hundreds of miles of hard stoned tracks, or hitting big jumps and drops, there really is something for everyone.
