Co-ed Beginner Mountain Bike Clinic
1 day clinic on Friday, July 1st 9:30am to 12pm at Galena Lodge (with optional free day clinic/ride on July 8th 9:30am to 12pm)
Are you ready to experience the FUN of mountain biking? Are you tired of feeling intimidated or nervous on singletrack? Our Beginner Clinic is for you. We will start with a group bike inspection and give you an introduction to your bike. We will then move on to learning about dynamic on-bike body positions, shifting, pedaling, braking and descending, climbing techniques, and introduction to cornering. Taught in a progressive format to ensure safety and comfort before moving on to the next skill. It also allows you to progress at your own pace.
Participants should be comfortable riding easy (beginner) singletrack trails on a mountain bike. If you haven’t yet felt comfortable enough to ride singletrack sign up for a private lesson at Galena beforehand. Participants should be able to ride a bike comfortably for over an hour at a moderate pace on flat or easy terrain. All participants should have a fully functioning MOUNTAIN BIKE that is a comfortable fit. Galena Lodge has fantastic mountain bikes for rent if you don’t have your own bike yet.
Age restrictions: You must be 16 or older to participate in this mountain bike clinic
There is a 2 week cancellation (and date change) policy for a full refund on your reservation. Anything less than 2 weeks will only be refunded if we can fill your spot.
