Multi-Week Progressions


Drop-In Mountain Bike Skills Rides

Our welcoming & experienced coaches truly enjoy teaching these young riders the fundamental skills that will help them progress their riding.

These single drop in rides explore singletrack trails throughout our extensive local trail network. Many rides will begin as a shuttle to allow the group to ride back to our office; this increases variety and usually allows a net loss of elevation to help with the hills.

Participants are expected to have experience on trails, a working mountain bike, and a desire to improve their riding.

  • Riders must have experience riding on trails and a desire to improve
  • Intended for youth who need a flexible schedule of single rides
  • Skills-based Group Rides with supportive, trained Coaches
  • PMBIA-based teaching methods enable progressions for every individual within a group
  • Group ratio of approx. 6 riders per Coach, or 8 – 10 riders per group with 2 coaches
  • A respectful environment develops relationships to allow fellow riders to become friends and friends become teammates!

GROUP RIDES Develop SKILLS & TEAMWORK

  • Flexible ride schedule: you choose the dates that work for you!

Other Suggestions for Elementary:

  • Bikes must have 2 brakes — either both handbrakes or a front handbrake with rear coaster. Coaster brakes are more difficult for proper descending.
