Start your summer with a big confidence booster with our beginner skills clinics 

BEGINNER  FUNDAMENTALS DSC01102

Let’s start from scratch and learn all the essentials of becoming a mountain biker! We’ll take the time to dial in the basics and have you feeling comfortable on confident with your body position by the end of the sessions. The Crawford trails at Myra-Bellevue Park are the perfect spot for a beginner to develop some new skills and discover more trails.

We start every beginner clinic with a bit of a bike set up and safety check. We want to set you up for success right off the bat! Then we’ll get into all the fundamentals of body position, gearing, basic cornering, braking skills, how to adjust your body positioning for different pitches, and rolling over small obstacles. We'll help you get started as a fresh biker with some nice new habits! The majority of the clinic will be spent learning and practicing skills on the lower trails.

This level 1 clinic is great for the new mountain biker who is looking to feel more comfortable on green trails before progressing to the blues.

Skill Level SB (Super Beginner)

This is a 2 part series with the 2nd day being a progression and review from Day 1, more time to practice skills and check out new trails and finishes off with a 30 min 'how to take care of your bike' Q & A.
