Our women’s only mountain bike skills clinics teach you the same important lessons as our co-ed skills clinics in a supportive, un-intimidating manner.

Are you ready to test your limits without any unnecessary pressure? Do you find yourself riding the same trail in the same old way? Are you looking for a refresher of the fundamentals? Or, perhaps you’re new to mountain biking and looking for a boost in your riding confidence?

YES, this clinic is great for beginners, BUT it’s truly a foundational clinic that’s appropriate for riders of all levels and experience.

Join us to learn the correct body position on the bike, gain an understanding of how to effectively use your brakes, float over roots and rocks like they aren’t there, nail that pesky switchback and ASK QUESTIONS! Find how to control your fear and stay relaxed.

Our Women’s only mountain bike skills clinic will give you more confidence on the trails and put an entirely new spin on your riding!
