San Tan Bikes "Night Shredders" Ride from the Main Parking Lot

Needs a location

Intermediate Level "Night Shredders" Mountain Bike Ride: Shed your work schedule then spend the evening lighting up the trails on two-wheels. During this San Tan Bikes-sponsored adventure, ole familiar trails become new again; challenging your skills from new and heightened perspectives. First timers to experts, this is a no-drop ride. Please bring your helmet and two 650-lumen lights (bar and helmet mount), and water. Snacks are optional. Meet near the flagpole ten-minutes early as wheels down are at the top of the hour.

Kali Protectives: "Intermediate Bike Skills: Front, Rear, Level Wheel Lifts"

Needs a location


Here's the scoop on how to ride with confidence and have more fun:

Join your ICP Certified Fundamental skills coaches: Jim and Tish for this afternoon as we learn how to master the "Wheel Lift."

This skill is a useful step when learning how to pump over rollers, rocks, and roots.

Once you have progressed through the basics, then we'll head to the trails where you learn how to session wheel lifts on a few different features. By the end of the clinic, you'll be a more confident rider while reducing your risk of injury.

Investment in yourself:
$120/3 hours

"Why should I take a skills class:"

  1. "I invested an x-amount of money to purchase an entry-level mountain bike," or "...the bike of my dreams."
  2. "I am a new rider and I want to ride safely with more confidence while having fun."
  3. "I am a seasoned rider," or "I like to race and go fast, and I need to improve my downhill descents to stay ahead of the competition."
  4. The coaches will provide instant feedback to help me fine-tune my body position on the bike."

It's time to invest in yourself. Take your riding skills from "meh" to "YEAH!"
