Bella Absolute Beginner Mt Bike Clinic

June 15 @ 10:00 am - June 16 @ 1:00 pm

Absolute Beginner Mt Bike Clinic for Bend Bellas, & their Friends, by
Grit Clinics. A 2-day clinic, June 15 & 16, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm each day.

Are you very new to mountain biking, or want to learn the basics? Want to learn safe riding body positions, more about your bike, the best way to brake, shifting techniques, how to climb more efficiently, descending safely on smooth or rough surfaces, how to make that corner without slipping out, tackling easy switchbacks? If so join us!

Bonnie Phippen, Grit Clinics Coach for past 7 years, will be your coach and she cannot wait to help.

Fee: $185* Attendee limit: 7 riders (may add another coach if more riders). Bend Bellas get an early bird $30 discount if at least 4 attendees sign up by May 15th.

Bring a well-maintained, tuned mountain bike, and your own light lunch or snack for a short break. Don’t have a bike yet? Rent one at Hutch’s, Pine Mountain Sports or your favorite local bike shop!

Heavy rain postpones clinic to another date.
Reminder: this clinic is only for those new to mountain biking, not a refresher course for the somewhat experienced!
