Beginner Mountain Bike Skills Clinics

In the Beginner AZ Mountain Biking Skills Clinics, participants will first be evaluated to be sure their bikes are set up correctly for them. Saddle height and tire pressure, for example, make a huge difference in riding and handling. Fundamental techniques such as riding positions, weight shift, braking, cornering, descents and climbing will be a review for some, and a new skill for others.

You’ll practice these necessary techniques on the trails in a relaxed, no pressure atmosphere. Even those with mountain biking experience will benefit from a better understanding of these “foundation” skills and how to consistently apply them on the trail.

There are group clinics and/or private sessions. Clinics are held several times per month, and private clinics or private sessions can be requested to fit your availability (see below or use our Contact Form).

Group (min group size 6): $75/ half day
