MTB Skills - Level 1

Ride Description

Whether you’re a beginning rider, an experienced biker wanting to brush up on basics, or somewhere in-between, this class will provide coaching to help your balance, safety, and confidence on the trails. This class teaches solid fundamental techniques for proper body positioning, braking, descending, shifting, and climbing.  You’ll either start that mountain biking career off like many wish they had or you’ll go back and learn what you wished someone had taught you in the first place.

Maximum 14 students. No matter how you ride your bike, you're about to ride it better!
