Cornering: Maximizing Fun

The trails of the entire Trail Spinner territory are an amazing collection of corners coming at you in rapid fire. Let's do a 2 hour clinic to bring new joy to your experience of cornering. In the process you'll get more speed with less work!

Corners come in a variety of shapes and sizes and how you enter and exit them can equal free speed and more flow. In this clinic we'll work on all the parts that equate to fun and confident cornering.

1. Body position is critical to gaining maximum traction and control. Do you counter-balance your weight, look around the corners, carry the magic speed in and out of a corner? We'll work on that!

2. How are your line choices? Do you chop early and scrub speed resulting in needing more energy to get started again?

3. Always putting an outside foot down? Maybe what you do on the road doesn't equate to the trails!

4. Braking in that corner? Lets find that predictive braking intuition!

This will be a two hour clinic for anyone who's been riding a bike for more than a year and feels comfortable riding on the trails of the Trail Spinner region. The time will be spent doing cornering drills in a field and on a piece of trail. You don't have to be a hot shot racer or even a daily ripper. Both those people are welcome and can benefit but since we aren't going on a "ride" there will be no one getting dropped.

 

Class is limited to 10 people so don't hesitate!

    Hi everyone. Parking lot is not in front of bird sanctuary. Take the left before the sanctuary to the natural lands park. Drive down the gravel road to the end.
    If you are familiar it's where Mtbers usually park.
