About the event

This 4 week program is open to the public. All Genders Welcome!

During this program, we cover the positions, gearing and braking components for those who have never had a lesson and to tweak those who have had a lesson. Then we go further: climbing strategies and descending techniques. We go on a small trail ride to session and put the techniques to work, sessioning and riding. 

Weekly lessons from 6:30-8:30pm on Monday nights. All instructors are certified mountain bike instructors via Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association or Bicycle Instructor Certification Program. Groups numbers are determined via safety ratios, but will be no more than 1 instructor to 6 participants. Waivers will be administered electronically prior to the event. 

Ability levels: Generally New to beginner beginners, especially if you have had a bike lesson before. The terrain will move from gravel path to the smaller 'single-track' trails for some sessioning of features relevant to the lesson (small log roll-overs, climbs and steeper descents). Like all SheShreds events, no one gets left behind. 

Please be prepared with a working mountain bike, weather appropriate clothing, a helmet, a bell, gloves, closed toed shoes, a snack, water and a super rad attitude :)  We also recommend stiff soled shoes, flat pedals, light/clear lens glasses, tire pump, tube and levers (if you have them!) We also recommend having a bike mechanic look over your bike prior to attending, especially if your bike has been in the garage all winter!

Cancellation policy: Event will be cancelled 1 week prior if unable to fill and you will be issued a full refund or option to join another newbie on wheels.  2hrs prior to lesson can be cancelled if weather is deemed unsafe or our actions will cause an unacceptable level of damage to the trails.  Event will be cancelled at any point during if lightening is observed. A 50% refund will be offered in the case of a weather cancellation. Otherwise, 100% refund within 5 days of purchase, 50% 14 days before the program start date, no refunds once program started unless reasons subjected from SheShreds.
