Event Description

JOIN MOUNTAIN BIKE INSTRUCTOR, JEN BRADDOCK, ON THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 17-18, 2022, FOR A WEEKEND CLINIC DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE SKILLS OF INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED WOMEN RIDERS AT MULBERRY GAP!
 
ABOUT THIS CLINIC:

This two-day clinic will build on the fundamentals of trail riding and focus on maintaining control on unstable terrain. We will explore and experiment with how our bikes, bodies, and the trail work in combination with each other to keep us moving. Understanding and practicing various skill sets help carry us through things such as off-camber lines, technical climbs, fast descents, and corners. We will practice maneuvers that can assist us down small drops or over large obstacles. This weekend is all about refining our technique to help us grow as mountain bikers and feel more confident so we can continue to enjoy our rides!

This NOT for new mountain bikers! All riders are expected to sustain a riding session (stop and go) that will be over 12 miles of national forest trails– this includes steep climbs and descents, technical single track, and gravel roads. All participants are encouraged to bring a hydration pack and any other trail support they may need to be self-sufficient.

Would you like to sign up a youth rider for this clinic? Here are the things to know:

  1. Youth ages 13+ are welcome to participate in the “Beginner MTB Skills”Clinics and the “Jumps & Drops for Intermediate/Advanced Riders” clinics. Please be sure that your youth rider has the appropriate skills to participate in the clinic as they will not be able to drop behind or opt out of traveling with the group.

  2. These are adult-geared clinics, so it’s important youth participants are ready to be focused, responsible, and ready to participate alongside mature adult learners.

  3. Parents/Guardians do NOT need to remain with their youth rider during the clinic, but must be certain to sign by the Mulberry Gap waiver and the Instructor’s waiver.

  4. Youth under age 13 are welcome to participate in the Beginner Skills Clinic only, and ONLY when a parent or guardian is also registered to participate in the clinic. Youth under age 13 are not eligible to participate in the Jumps & Drops clinic at this time.
