We'll go over communication skills, mountain biking trail etiquette, and we'll practice these new skills on a beginner friendly trail ride! Don't have a bike? We'll provide full-suspension mountain bikes for participants at no additional charge. Recommended for those 14 and older; participants under 18 must be accompanied by parent or responsible adult.
