The Learning Curve and TORCA are pleased to provide an “Introduction to Mountain Biking” course.
During this four week beginner* course we will cover the following topics and skills:
Week 1 – welcome/waiver signing, trail building/maintenance (No bikes required; please come dressed for trail work)
Week 2 – stance, balance, gearing, braking
Week 3 – gravity management – climbing, descending, rolls
Week 4 – cornering and wheel lifts
Each session runs for two hours. The first session will be an introduction and overview to the series and a chance to learn about trail building and do some hands-on trail maintenance. The remaining three sessions will have one and half hours of instruction (including practice time and instructor feedback) followed by a guided ride to reinforce the skills covered.
Class size is limited to 15 riders with three instructors.
Classes will take place on Saturdays from 9:30 – 11:30 am.
