This one is for you Ladies!
Tired of trying to keep up with your partner or friends? Donít feel like getting off your bike for all those obstacles in the trail? In this 4-week series we will take time to focus on one or two skills for the day and spend lots of time on the trails mastering it. This is for the beginner woman rider who wants to get more comfortable with the mountain biking basics and build on their skills.
We will meet once a week for 4-weeks and ride for 2hrs. Come prepared to have fun! We guarantee you will be a new rider by the end of this series. This is for ladies ages 15 and up. We welcome individuals, families and groups.
Some of the skills we will be covering are basic body positioning, braking, climbing and descending, getting over obstacles, cornering, rolling down small ledges and more. Pace will determined by the group. No one will be left behind and you will get lots of individual instruction and feedback in a supportive women-only environment.
This series will be taught by Silvia and Ann.
