Calling all beginners who'd like to get some instruction and work on the beginner mountain bike skills. For this clinic, I'll be meeting up at the Trailside Loop and Skills Park in PC, and instructing on a number of the topics covered in the SLCMTB Beginner Skills Guide. The topics will include (as time allows):
Weight Shifts for Climbing/Descending
A good place to practice all of this while not clogging up the XC trails is at the Trailside Loop and Skills Park in Park City. Class will begin at the circle near the end of the parking lot. I'll explain a skill, demonstrate the technique, have you guys practice, provide feedback, and then we'll move on to another skill. We'll be starting in the parking lot and using the park features as needed.
Expect about 1-2 hours of instruction and practice for the whole group, and if time and daylight remains I'll be available to help with any other topics individuals would like to work on.
From Salt Lake City, go east on I-80 over Parley's Summit. Skip the Park City exit, and exit at the US-40 (Heber, Silver Creek) exit a couple of miles later. Turn right on US-40. 1/2 mile later, exit at Silver Summit and turn right on Silver Summit Parkway. A mile later, you'll come to a stop sign. Here the main road turns right, and you'll see a parking area straight ahead.
Hope to see some enthusiastic beginners out there!
