Bike Skills 104 -- Intro to Gravel Riding

Curious about gravel grinding? Join us for Bike Skills 104: Intro to Gravel Riding. We’ll cover the fundamentals of riding off the beaten path and adventure planning. This 8-hour clinic includes a two-hour pre-meeting on Thursday, January 31st to help you prepare for the weekend, covering the gear and the tools needed for fun and safe riding (bike and tire selection, clothing, etc). On Sunday, we focus on the fundamental skills of riding on dirt and mixed terrain, riding over obstacles, braking, cornering, and general bike handling. After lunch (included) we'll finish the day with a group ride on our beautiful trails, giving you the opportunity to practice and receive feedback on the skills we learned in the morning.

This is an outside, on-the-bike clinic. You will need to provide your own bike, helmet, and cycling clothes. A limited number of gravel bikes will be available from Thesis Bikes.

Thursday, January 31st, 6:00pm -- 2 hour classroom session (Campbell)
Sunday, February 3rd, 9:00am -- 6 hour clinic, lunch, trail ride (San Jose)
