You may ask… “I haven’t been on a bike in years and I am horribly out of shape. Can I still do this clinic?”
Yes! Even if you have not been on a bike in years, you can still participate in this clinic. The Beginning groups is a great way to get back on the bike or give mountain biking your first try. Instructors will teach you basic handling and shifting and drills on the pavement will give you the chance to get comfortable on the bike.
Who is coaching at this event?
Coaches who love what they do!! WE will have PMBI and IMBA Certified coaches at all the clinics.
How do I know what level I am?
You have riding skills & balance, and are wanting to gain confidence and fitness. You want to feel comfortable both on and off trails and learn how to work through your gears. You may be timid, but you want to begin to learn how to ride over obstacles. You are close to progressing to an Intermediate level, but still need some guidance and encouragement before feeling confident enough to move up.
While you have been mountain biking for a little over two years and may have solid Intermediate skills, you still tend to question your ability riding new obstacles or trails. You may be someone who has ridden in the past and after several years coming back to the sport, but have technical abilities beyond a Beginner level. You may not be as physically fit and worry about holding up others when riding in a group. You feel confident on the trails and obstacles you ride regularly, but you may be lacking confidence when trying something new.
