2 Day Elevate Your Ride clinic

April 27-28 @ Knox Mountain

Ready to take your mountain biking to the next level? This 2-day mountain bike clinic is designed for riders comfortable on green and blue trails who want to build confidence and conquer more challenging terrain.

This camp is perfect for you if:

  • You’re comfortable riding green and blue trails but want to improve your skills.
  • You feel you’ve plateaued and want to tackle more challenging terrain.
  • You want to build confidence and become a more efficient rider.
  • You’re looking for a fun and supportive learning environment.

As we ride the beautiful Knox Mountain trails you will develop your skills to handle the various terrain. From flowy single track to riding bumps and berms our PMBI certified instructors are there every step of the way. Our instructors will get you started by focusing on the foundations of mountain biking, including body position, balance, braking, and cornering to give you a solid foundation to develop your skills.

Our goal is to not only have you develop your skills on a mountain bike, but to help you develop confidence in your own abilities so that you can challenge yourself and push outside your comfort zone to see what you are truly capable of.

Day One: Build Your Foundation

Master the Basics: Hone your body position, balance, and range of motion for improved control and comfort on the bike. Practice drills that build confidence and prepare you for the trails.

Braking Like a Boss: Forget death grips! Learn controlled braking techniques with both front and rear brakes, including feathering and skid control (in a safe area) for confident descents.

Conquer Any Climb: Develop efficient climbing techniques to tackle hills with ease. Master gear selection, maintain smooth cadence, and conquer inclines with power.

Fun Trail Ride: Put your newfound skills to the test on a beginner-friendly green trail. Our instructors will be there to provide helpful feedback and keep the ride fun and engaging.

Day Two: Put it All Together

Sharpen Your Skills: Briefly revisit key techniques like body position, braking modulation, and climbing efficiency, ensuring you’re ready to tackle more challenging terrain.

Terrain Awareness Masterclass: Learn to “read” the trail. Develop terrain awareness to anticipate rocks, roots, drops, and other features. Our instructors will teach you where to look and how to react confidently to changing terrain.

Cornering with Confidence: Master the “Low Lean Look” technique for smooth and controlled cornering. Practice on gentle berms and gradually progress, conquering turns with newfound skill.
