About This Activity

Have you reached a level in your mountain biking where you’re riding the same old trails in the same old way?  Or, perhaps you’re new to mountain biking and just need a boost in your riding confidence and basic skills?  Join us to learn in an nonjudgmental setting with an encouraging group of your peers.

These clinics prove to be advantageous as they allow participants to test their limits without any unnecessary pressure.

Our Women's only mountain bike skills clinic will help you improve every aspect of your trail riding.  Take the next step and register for this clinic right now.

Find out how to control your fear and stay relaxed; to walk the line between fight and flight. Learn to float over roots and rocks like they aren’t there, attack corner after corner without dabbing the brakes and find your flow.
