What To Expect
The skills clinic is implemented in an open flat area with cones and some obstacles. Why? This allows for a safe and controlled environment and knowing how to control your bike on flat ground is essential as it allows you to get comfortable with handling your bike before hitting the trails. Please note that there is no pressure on our skills clinics and if you do not feel comfortable doing one of the skills you can watch and learn. Please feel free to ask as many questions as you want, no question is ever silly and we all learn from one another and share our experiences.
