There is nothing worse than a overconfident low skilled rider that purely relies on expensive equipment to bail him/her out.

Lean or steer into it??? -how to bail and dismount on a steep up or downhill -efficient shifting, pedaling and cadence -preloading and unweighting the bike -traction, when and why do we loose it -and many more depending on the level of rider Who is this course for? If you are new to Mountain Biking or your off road experience has mostly been on gravel roads, then this is a must do before riding our East Coast trails. I will pack as much as possible into the 90 minute course, but you will go home with plenty of homework. There is definitely no shame in taking this MTB - fundamentals course more then once.
