Mountain Bike Basics
Starting Saturday March 24, 2012
Noon to 4:00Pm

Class is on Saturdays starting at Noon, and until 4:00Pm. These will be beginner trail rides on the dirt with some instruction on the pavement. Ranger Randy Victory a certified cycling instructor and a Mountain Bike Patroller will offer everything from basic riding techniques to trail etiquette.

Although the rides are oriented towards beginners everyone is welcome to attend (minimum age is 15-16). There is always a certain amount of interaction between riders. Group rides where the beginners are supportive of each other. More experienced riders can offer their insight into mountain biking an excellent way to build skills and having a great time doing it.

The focus is on fun! Riders will be REQUIRED to wear a bicycle helmet and complete an
Acknowledgment of Risk Form
