About this event

Description

St. Charles County Parks and Recreation and Wheels Up is teaming up to offer a variety of mountain bike skills clinics ranging from beginners to experts. Programs are offered at a variety of parks as well as times, so don't miss out on this unique opportunity to take your mountain biking skills to the next level! Bike and helmet required.


Learn to Jump Clinic: Learning how to safely and successfully jump (and land) your mountain bike involves a range of key components and constantly changing variables. Join us as we take you through a series of progressions that will help you understand; all the components to become a successful jumper. We use BICP progressions like the basic wheel lifts, manuals and bunny hops and work our way up to weighting and un-weighting over a jump. From there, we'll review the anatomy of a jump, discuss varied landings and practice using compression for height and distance. Then we will be ready to get jumping! These Skill Clinics are all done in a controlled environment, we provide our own approved orange obstacles as training tool to emulate what you see in the trails or manufactured jump ramps. Participants are encouraged to learn at their own pace in this un-intimidating environment. You will leave this clinic well on your way to jumping mastery with a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of jumping your bike and a clear idea of what and how to practice getting some air!
If you are unsure what level you may fall into or have an older child that may benefit from a adult clinic, contact wheelsupmtb@gmail.com
