DORBA Beginner Clinic

THIS CLINIC HAS MOVED FROM DEC 14 TO DEC 28th

There will be a beginner clinic on Saturday the 28th of December at 1pm at River Legacy Park in Arlington. 

There is a "classroom" for about an hour or so, a mini-skills workshop for 30 minutes, and then a ride of an hour or more. So count on approximately 2.5 to 3 hours.
The clinic is recommended for riders new to the sport. If you have never ridden a mountain bike before or have just started out riding, then this is for you. Beginner Clinics will consist of basic instruction including bike setup, safety, trail etiquette, bike handling skills such as climbing, descending, cornering, obstacles, etc. There will be a ride after the instructional portion of the clinic.


You do NOT need to be a DORBA member or FWMBA member to attend. You WILL be told why you should consider joining one of these clubs. We DO require that you bring and use your helmet and strongly advise you to bring water. If you do not agree with our helmet requirement you will not be allowed to participate.

Requirements: You must sign a DORBA Liability Waiver, bring a bike, a good attitude, and a bicycle helmet that you are willing to wear for the entire clinic. Please download the DORBA liability waiver, http://files.meetup.com/3841722/NEW-WAIVER.pdf fill it out, and bring it with you.

This clinic is dependent upon good weather and trail conditions. CHECK THIS POST THE MORNING OF THE CLINIC for any changes or cancelations. i.e. don't ask me "is this thing still going to happen". If I have to cancel because of weather, I will make the appropriate announcement on this thread.

Parents can determine whether or not your child is old enough to attend. Parent are responsible for the happiness, behavior, and safety of their kids every single minute of the clinic. They will not be allowed to hold back the rest of the clinic. All attendees under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian with them. You can not drop off your kid.

    this clinic does NOT start at the trail head. It starts just east of the parking lot before the trailhead parking lot. Take the fork to the left, after you enter the park. the map above shows where.

    sorry to disappoint you guys. If it weren't for rain, even rain in the form of snow and ice, we wouldn't have mountain biking in the woods.

    sorry, I have to postpone this a week. So sorry. But I have been told by the Trail Steward that the trail will not be dry. The cold has nothing to do with it.

    Might be 15 mins late to the classroom portion since I'm going to be working until 12 in Dallas.
