    I am a beginner. I needed basic lessons on riding a bike let alone mountain biking. Clif and his friend guided me throughout the whole ride. They also gave me an intro session & prepared me for the ride. I fell and scratched my knees but with their encouragement, I got back up & continued. When I got tired, they were very patient & positive. I would recommemd this place because Clif has so much experience & he makes the experience fun. I had a blast and now biking will be more fun for me. I recommend this place.

      Great meeting you and keep biking. Earnies Cycle shop in Westbrook will take excellent care of you. I spoke to Bruce and he knows that you'll need a small frame bike.
