  • Just starting out on the mountain bike? Been at it for a while but feel like you're getting nowhere?

    Mountain biking is fun but with a few fundamentals it gets a lot more enjoyable. The skills we go over will create a foundation for you to build upon for steady progress the rest of your riding days.

    In this two hour clinic we will work on the fundamental skills to riding safely and in control.

    1. Body Position
    2. Braking for control and safety
    3. Slow moving bike control
    4. Cornering
    5. Pressure control

    Bring a helmet and clothing for the weather. This is rain or shine.

    Hey Harlan, I just wanted you to know that the skills I learned from you back in January are really paying off. I still have much room for improvement, especially while on real trails, but I'm getting the hang of the pressure concepts, especially in cornering. I learned to do "hops" with front & back wheels this past weekend, but now I need to get the timing right on the trails. Most importantly, I'm having a lot more fun and more confidence on the trails! Thanks again for you great instruction!
