This one-day clinic is open to the public, but ladies only please.
So what happens at this clinic? We get to know our bikes - all the important parts and how to make it a comfortable bike for you. We learn about the main body positions when biking down a trail- and why they make sense (time for a little physics!). We play some balance games to get a feel of our range of motion. Then we get into all the handlebar bits: brake and gearing.This is all translated on the trail as we head out for a fun ride at the end of the day.
This clinic is 3 hours long. All instructors are certified instructors via Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association (Level 1). Groups numbers are determined via safety ratios, but will be no more than 1 instructor to 7 gals. Waivers and other forms must be completed when you arrive at the clinic. No signed waivers = no clinic. NO EXCEPTIONS! A COVID-19 agreement and a physical acitvity assessment and a photo consent will also be provided to sign.
Ability levels: This is the place to be if you are new to our favourite sport or if you already know how much fun you can have on a bike, and looking to improve. Generally beginner beginners to early intermediates. The terrain will move from gravel path to the smaller 'single-track' trails and adapt to the ability of everyone that attends. 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 :) If you need to rent a mountain bike, reach out and we can help to set you up with one of United Cycle's Trek fleet!
Our COVID-19 modifications requre that all participants (including coaches) self-screen for symptoms prior to attending, wash their hands, disinfect their bikes and wear a cloth mask or a buff. Coaches will avoid touching you and your bike as much as possible to prevent cross-contamination. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant will be available.
We also recommend stiff bike shoes, flat pedals, light/clear lens glasses, tire pump, tube and levers (if you have them!)
