Want to get those wheels off the ground? Don't want to have to get off and walk over every obstacle in the trail? Join this fun class to learn the fundamentals that will get you started with the freeriding basics. You'll learn to maintain good body position while conquering wheel lifts, obstacles, step-downs and drops. We are gearing this class toward the intermediate rider so you should have some experience on your bike and be comfortable with the basics. If you have questions please email the instructor. This class is for adults and kids 15 and above; we welcome families, individuals and groups.
Plan on 3hrs where we aim to be done by 1pm.
