Mountain biking is a fun way to exercise and connect with nature.

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:
