by robhoward on July 3, 2010

Mountain Biking is like any other sport: there are proven programs and methods to learn the basics. We will teach you the basics about your bike, various terrain and obstacles, and help you become a better rider, to minimize the risks and maximize the fun. Join Bob Loeffler and the Bikeskills crew and get started the right way: the Bikeskills way!

BIKESKILLS New Rider Day Clinic


Are you new to mountain biking? Or perhaps you’ve been riding a while but have yet to get comfortable on your bike. Maybe you’ve had a few “lessons” from a buddy or significant other but it just didn’t seem to help. If so, the New Rider Day is exactly what you need.

In about 4 hours, you’ll be more confident and better equipped to hit the trails safely and riding with a smile on your face. In the clinic we’ll cover:

  • Proper bike fit and safety gear
  • How to prep for all kinds of rides
  • Trail Etiquette
  • Solid riding basics including shifting, climbing, cornering, descending and braking
  • On trail and at home bike maintenance and fixes
  • Worthy upgrades to you, your bike and your gear and where to find them
  • Expanding your horizons: Great places to ride and people to ride with

The clinic includes on-trail riding with personal instruction combined with shade tree discussions and demos, all in a casual, relaxed atmosphere and scenic location. Expect to ride a little over 6 miles on relatively flat terrain with a mix of fire road and single track.
