Class Experience

Join us for an engaging, fun, and welcoming group that is focused on meeting each participant at their current skill-set and helping them level up to meet higher individual riding goals. We focus on everything from the fundamentals to more advanced riding skills, with the over-arching goal of helping participants develop into safe riders who understand how to use our local trails sustainably. 


Mountain biking is an engaging, challenging, and exciting sport. Our MTB club program is for beginning to intermediate riders who want to gain fitness, endurance, and confidence, and develop a strong foundation riding mountain bikes and single track trails.
