Led by certified instructor Jennifer 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."
