Intro to Mountain Biking: Trail Class
October 24, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Mountain biking is a fun way to exercise and connect with nature. If you're curious about leaving the asphalt behind and gearing up for the trails, this Intro to Mountain Biking Guided Trail Ride is designed for you! Take your riding even further by taking the skills you learned in the Fundamentals Class out onto the trail with our experienced instructors. They'll guide you on a group ride allowing time for skills demonstration and practice on singletrack trails. Even though these are intended to be group rides, our Instructors teach in a format that's structured to your pace and individual learning style.
The course will cover the following, in a fun and relaxed riding atmosphere:
- Safety check and bike fit
- Body positions and bike handling for off-road terrain
- Shifting, pedal positions, and braking
- Maneuvering techniques and drills
- Climbing and descending
- Singletrack riding techniques and trail etiquette
You don't have to have prior mountain biking experience to participate, but you must be able to ride a bike confidently and we highly recommend taking the Fundamentals Class before going on a guided trail ride. Don't have a mountain bike? No problem. We have mountain bikes for use at no additional charge so you can decide if this sport is for you before making a big investment. Appropriate for ages 10+. Cost: $10 per person. Mountain bikes, helmets, and instruction provided. Online Reservations required in advance. Fundamentals Courses meet at Greenway Farms Park. Complete course details are given with paid registration. Email Outdoor Chattanooga or call (423) 643-6888 to learn more.
