Beginner Skills Clinic (Roots, Terrain, Logovers) - ALL WELCOME!

  • to
  • Rockburn Branch Skills Park

    5400 Landing Road, Elkridge, MD (map)

    39.222450 -76.755844

  • Go to the top of the hill overlooking the sports fields. We'll gather by the skills park sign.
  • RIDE LEADER: Brian

    NUMBER: (seven-o-tree...tree-too-tree...for-for-o-fife)

    Roots on the trails freakin' you out?

    Trails sandy? not so dandy?

    See some gravel, start to unravel?

    Stinkin' logovers always make you walk your bike?

    Wanna work on basic skills?

    Never ride on dirt?

    No real skills to speak of and want a place to start?

    Want a friendly and patient environment with like-minded beginners?

    These are some of the reasons I've decided to post this ride.  If you're a beginner, this is the place for you to start.  Mountain biking isn't the safest pastime in the world, but this ride will be about as safe as it gets, and in a low-stress environment.  You can feel free to ask any questions you want without being embarrassed.  We'll work on a few basic skills, hopefully with the end result of riding some real trails in a controlled and safe manner.  This will help prepare you for some of the other, more demanding beginner rides that are posted regularly.

    We're only meeting at the skills park.  We are NOT riding it...we're gonna ride around it. ^_^

    I'll add more details as I come up with them!

    Hi folks. Bad news...maybe. I need to change the time of this by 6 hours...I now have a church gig in the morning. For some, that'll make the schedule easier...for others, worse. Apologies! It was a bit of a surprise to me, too. The good news? Great weather and not too hot! I'm going to cancel this one and repost at the new time so it's announced to everyone to give people a chance to re-evaluate whether or not they want to reschedule. Thanks for your patience, and sorry if it ends up inconvenient!
