Mountain biking is a fun way to exercise and connect with nature. If you’re curious about leaving the asphalt behind and gearing up for the trails, this Intro to Mountain Biking Fundamentals course is designed for you! Learn the fundamentals of mountain biking from our experienced instructors through skills demonstration and practice in a controlled setting. Our instructors teach in a format that’s structured to your pace and individual learning style. 

The course will cover the following, in a fun and relaxed atmosphere:

  • Safety check and bike fit
  • Body positions and bike handling for off-road terrain
  • Shifting, pedal positions, and braking
  • Maneuvering techniques and drills
  • Climbing and descending 
  • Singletrack riding techniques

You don’t have to have prior mountain biking experience to participate, but you must be able to ride a bike confidently and we highly recommend taking the Fundamentals Class before going on a Guided Trail Ride. See the schedule below. Don’t have a mountain bike? No problem. We have mountain bikes for use at no additional charge so you can decide if this sport is for you before making a big investment. Appropriate for ages 10+. Cost: $10 per person.
