About This Activity

Maybe you’re completely new to mountain biking, or perhaps you’re a little more experienced, but you’ve never been taught the fundamentals of riding off-road. Possibly you’ve tried some technical trails, but lacked confidence and scared yourself a few times?

We're taking our clinics to the trails of Balboa Park at Morley Field. Our Mountain Bike Skills :: Basics course will give you the core skills to get out in the woods tackling technical trails with confidence and commitment.

Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in confidence. You’ll understand how changes in your body position, footwork and where you are looking affect the way your bike behaves on single track trails. You’ll be able to tackle steeper terrain, corner with greater control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease.

The skills taught and practiced on the Mountain Bike Skills :: Basics course include:

Mind skills
The Ready Position
Dynamic weight shift
Effective braking
Negotiating trail obstacles
Cornering skills
Negotiating steep terrain
