Due to popular demand, BACE is starting a beginner's technical class. Please join us if you would like to bring your beginning mountain bike skills to the next level. This first class will focus on: positioning on the bike, shifting, hills.... love 'em both-up and down, rules of the trail and question/answer. I'll be consulting with BACE's incredibly skilled Advanced Ninja class leader, Andrew Mesesan. In addition, you'll be receiving the same tips and tricks for new riders as Bend's very own pro woman cyclist and great teacher, Lindsay Vorheis.
For the first class we'll be doing a small ride that incorporates a hill, some practice rocks, a whoop de doo and a small rock garden!
It will be a learning class with take home drills to practice so that you can bring your riding to the next level. EVERYONE is welcome! Perhaps you are an advanced beginner rider rather than a true beginner-we'll give you more advanced techniques to practice. We may ride 1-5 miles during any one particular class if warranted or may not ride much at all. Please remember to bring a helmet, water and a great attitude! We were not all born do ride wheelies but we sure can try!
Ride Rating; Beginner; Endurance Rating E1, Technical Rating T2 (we'll ride some rocks at some classes)
