JOIN PMBIA CERTIFIED MOUNTAIN BIKE INSTRUCTOR, JEN BRADDOCK, ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 2021, FOR A ONE-DAY BEGINNER MOUNTAIN BIKE SKILLS CLINIC AT MULBERRY GAP. YOUTH RIDERS ARE WELCOME TO REGISTER WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY A REGISTERED ADULT RIDER.
ABOUT THIS CLINIC:
Do you find yourself riding around roots and rocks on the trail? Are you struggling to get up that hill? Maybe you avoid a particular trail because it's just "too hard?" While you may not ride away at the end of the day doing bunnyhops and tail whips, this clinic will provide you with the strength and confidence to make your rides more fun and memorable. Led by certified instructor Jen Braddock, we will break down the fundamental skills needed to keep your wheels on the ground, momentum stout, and stoke level high. "I had been riding for years and didn't realize I had such terrible technique - I was able to quickly turn around my bad habits, and it improved my riding drastically." So whether you just purchased your first mountain bike or have been hitting the dirt for a few years, we will share some tips and knowledge in a chill, no pressure environment so that you feel safe and in control next time you take it to the trails!

Things we will cover, but not limited to, include:

How to stay balanced on unstable terrain

Efficient cadence & shifting

Cornering

Braking techniques

Picking lines

We will also go over some basic maneuvers that will aid in technical spots. Space is limited, so let's get rolling!

Have a partner or friend who is an INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED RIDER? Make it a weekend getaway for you both with the Beginner Clinic on Sunday, Intermediate/Advanced Clinic on Saturday and the rest of the time to hang out, ride, hot tub, and enjoy the weekend together!
