Beginner Progression Series


Beginner Progression Series

February 1, 2024

Check back here in February for 2024 dates & details, we’ll offer 2 x 4 week series in May & June. Or get a group together and do a private session anytime!

Are you fairly new to mountain biking and not sure where to start? Start with us!  Over the course of 3 weeks Sweet Skills coaches will teach you the fundamentals to get you going for an awesome summer of riding. You’ll learn a ton from our patient and fun female coaches as they talk you through everything you need to know about your bike, your set-up and of course how to ride it!

The first 2 sessions will focus on practicing foundational bike skills in an open area.  This will set you up with great bike habits from the get go!  The coaches will work with you on a stable body position for different terrain, teach you to use your gears and brakes, how to negotiate corners and bumps on the trail, and most of all how to relax and have fun!  After dialing in these skills, we will take what we learned to the trails!  Fresh off all that practice and with your own supportive cheering squad you will be tackling the terrain with a new set of confidence!

Meet new riding buddies to ride with in between our sessions, discover new trails that are at your ability level, and watch your stoke level and skills soar! After the last class of the series come join us at RMU Blackcomb for an après.

This clinic is aimed at Beginner riders who are comfortable riding level pedals on crushed gravel trails, can execute basic corners and are ready to learn how to ride the technical trails in Lost Lake. Whether you are brand new to the technical or just starting to get into it we’ll have a group for you.
