Do you want to smoothly ride trails, ride roots and rocks with consistency and make that steep climb that gets you every time? Do you blast through trail with speed but then have trouble when attempting things more slowly? Do you want to be safer and have more fun on your bike? These clinics are what you need to get your season off to a great start. Learn and practice the foundational skills of mountain biking that will allow you to roll through your favorite trail with more ease. Improve balance and confidence on your bike to keep those wheels rolling, then progress to the next level under the supervision of Coach Heather McNamara (BICP Board and Certified Level 2, PMBIA Level 1, First Aid/CPR certified) and her team!

Brief review of foundational skills from clinic 1 (warm-up), introduce and progress intermediate skills
