Learn Essential Mountain Bike Skills and Become a Smooth, Confident Rider
The big picture of this Mountain Bike Skills Clinic – Level 1 weekend camp is designed for the more beginner level mountain biker who has spent some time riding mountain bikes on their own already, but needs development in the foundational skills to help them feel more confident and capable on the bike.
During the level 1 mountain bike clinic, we focus a lot on body position, developing a greater range of motion over the bike, and creating more bike/body separation. Beginner riders are often only comfortable in a fairly rigid position on the bike, so increasing comfort with bike/body separation allows riders to be more playful, stable in a variety of situations, and confident.
We also focus on the operation of controls, doing a lot of specific braking drills and learning how/why to adjust ration of front/rear braking. The level 1 MTB Clinic also gets into the basics of how to tackle obstacles you may encounter in the trail by working on wheel lifts (front, rear, both) to lift or unweight wheels over logs, rocks, steps, drop-offs, etc. We also cover cornering basics by focusing on angulation, body position, and rotation.
