Learn the gear, maintenance, safety and entry level techniques for basic mountain biking. Mountain biking is a great way to enjoy the wilderness with a little more skill and finesse, of getting out for a short outing after work, and for building cardio before a big climb. There will be two classroom and three field sessions for the mountain biking class. The cost is $35. There are also rental costs if you don’t own the gear. The mountain biking classroom dates are 11 and 12 Sep from 6:00p to 9:30p, and the field dates are 14, 21, and 28 Sep all day. A general fitness level to go on a full day bike ride is required for the field sessions. The field sessions will be progressive in nature to build on skills.
