This clinic is for beginner and novice riders with access to a good bike. We will cover basic gear and mechanics and spend time assessing skills the morning of day one. Skills introduced, taught and practiced include braking, balance, shifting, downhill technique, uphill climbing and more. Class will progress during the weekend over more challenging terrain and obstacles leading to higher competence and confidence. Expect to travel to local trails for the later part of day (up to 45 minutes.)
Bring bike, helmet, food, water, appropriate clothing. Basic bike skills required.
