Experience the thrill of mountain biking with our enthusiastic, knowledgeable instructors!

We'll also go over important communication skills and mountain biking trail etiquette with the aim of keeping multi-use trails open and safe for everyone. And finally, we'll practice all these new skills on a beginner friendly trail ride! Don't have a bike? We'll provide mountain bikes for students at no additional charge. Recommended for those 14 and older; those under 18 must be accompanied by parent or responsible adult. This class is for those who are already comfortable riding a bike on flat and even terrain.
