Mountain Bike Instruction Course
This 4 hour course by a certified MTB instructor utilizes the proven skill-based instruction by PMBIA. All levels of riders benefit from learning and mastering essential skills. Initial instruction takes place on grassy fields and gravel roads, so even very new beginners will be comfortable. More experienced, intermediate riders often discover a missing basic skill is hampering their progress in handling more difficult terrain. The program progresses to skills for navigating narrow trails and managing obstacles. Additional skills covered may include climbing and descending, cornering, wheel lifts. Very small group size allows for individual attention and mastery of skills. This course will give you plenty of preparation for riding the Greenway as well as other local trails. This program is scheduled for July 15, 2017. Additional Mountain Bike Courses will be offered in late August and September. See Anne Springs Close Greenway Mountain Biking Facebook Group page for additional updates and information.
Cost: $40 members, $45 nonmembers. Groups size is limited to 4 participants. You need your own bike, helmet and water. A small snack will be provided. Please contact instructor directly for how to register at [email protected].
