This course will also give you the confidence to attempt more technical terrain, drops, downhills and climbs.

We will also cover an intro to jumping.

What To Expect

Knowing how to control your bike on flat ground is important when considering how your bike will react on uneven terrain. We will do some ground work and then hit the trails!
