Skills Clinic #99: Rolling Over Obstacles

What: Learning how to roll over roots, rocks and logs is an essential mountain biking skill to learn. I will set up an obstacle course that is more difficult than the one I set up at the beginner clinics, and my volunteers and I will teach how to safely and effectively roll over them.

When: Saturday, March 15th,  at 9:30am who: Intermediate riders. 

Who: You must be either a DORBA member, or a FWMBA member to attend. Ages 13 and up for this clinic. Everyone under 18 must have a parent with them during the clinic, in attendance. 

Where: Erwin Park, a few miles west of McKinney Texas. Trail website: Google Map location:

We will meet by the Gazebo.

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, fill it out, and bring it with you.

You must be a paid DORBA member at take this clinic. Not a webpage member, not a member, a real member.

If you have questions, just post them up below. 

I need VOLUNTEERS! PLEASE help me out. Lets encourage newcomers to our sport, they are our future trail stewards, volunteers, and board members! 

If there it rains before the Clinic, then check back here and see if this clinic has to be postponed. This clinic will not take place on muddy trails.

If you have questions, PLEASE first read the Clinic FAQs page.

    Thanks to everyone who came out. Big thanks to the huge number of volunteers who came out. We got everything done we wanted to do in both clinics, and the weather was never a factor. Thanks to President Della for the lunch and the appreciation award she gave to me on behalf of DORBA.

    This clinic is ON. Scattered thunderstorm in McKinney are going to be very scattered. Doesn't mean we will get any rain. If we do it will be very brief. So come on out. This clinic will be done by 11:15, DORBA provided lunch is from 11:30 to 12:30.

    I know there is a chance of Scattered Thundershowers tomorrow, on the day of the clinic, just remember, if it is showering where YOU are, doesn't mean that the trail west of Mckinney will be getting rain, so check the radar before you bail on this clinic…
    Because I think there is a good chance we can pull this clinic off. Scattered Showers is not nearly as bad as predicted rain. Steady rain.

    Della Bird, DORBA president, says they will be providing a picnic lunch from 11:30 to 12:30!

      I keep hoping for scattered showers. A lot different than steady rain.

    no, I will not. I am the only person who has taught this clinic the past 10 years. And Clinic #100 is my last Skills Clinic. But surely Sharon and Jerry will plan something. I held this clinic about once every 8 months, on average.
