Whether you are new to mountain biking or an experienced rider, learning the fundamental skills will take your riding to the next level – safely and with confidence. You’ll practice essential riding techniques, including body and bike position, shifting, braking, climbing, descending, and navigating minor obstacles on the trail. Our instructors will go over important communication skills and mountain biking trail etiquette with the aim of keeping multi-use trails safe and accessible for everyone. This class is ideal for those who are already comfortable riding a bike on flat and even terrain looking to advance their skills and technique. Please note that these clinics are focused on skills with little to no trail riding. If you want skills training with more riding check out our Trail Adults program.

All clinics are led by our BICP Certified Skills Instructors that have a passion for sharing their knowledge, teaching, and developing others. Clinics are limited to six riders.

Loppet Cycle Works clinics provide guidance on:

  • Bike set-up
  • Body position
  • Pressure control and balance
  • Bike and body separation
  • Cornering techniques
  • Climbing and descending
  • Braking techniques
  • And more…

Required equipment for this class includes the following. We are happy to help you make bike adjustments during the first session.

  • A tuned mountain bike or fat bike
  • Flat platform pedals are prefered and smooth soled shoes are ideal
  • A helmet
  • Having the ability to lower your saddle is helpful, but not mandatory
  • A willingness to learn

Once you have completed your session, you can join Loppet Cycle Works groups rides throughout the week, trips to amazing destinations, and attend follow-up clinics and camps. Information regarding all of these extended opportunities will be provided during your session.
