Experience the thrill of mountain biking in a women's only environment with our enthusiastic, knowledgeable female instructors! We'll start by addressing proper bike fit while making any necessary adjustments to your bike. Next we'll demonstrate riding techniques, including body and pedal position, shifting, braking, climbing, descending, and navigating minor obstacles on the trail. We'll also go over important communication skills and mountain biking trail etiquette with the aim of keeping multi-use trails open and safe for everyone. Finally, we'll practice all these new skills on a great trail ride! Don't have a bike? We'll provide full suspension Ghost mountain bikes at no additional charge.
