New Time, New Coach – Absolute Beginner MTB Clinic – Non-Bella Event

July 10, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Slight change of plans…Now an earlier time, 9:00 am to beat the heat. And this clinic will be taught by Agnes Rodriguez because I had unexpected surgery and cannot teach. Agnes is a very experienced Grit Clinics coach and has lots of experience with beginners so she will not disappoint! You can read about her on the Grit Clinics website, (second coach down from the top):

You will love Agnes! Have a great clinic!

This is non-Bella event, but an event for Bellas! July 10 & 11, 10 am -1 pm.

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 9 years, will be your coach and she cannot wait to help you learn!
Fee: see below* By signing up here in Meetup you are only expressing serious interest. A URL to the Grit Clinics registration pages is below for an official registration.
Attendee limit: 7 riders (may add another coach if more riders).
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 a Bend 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!

$225 for both days. Skill sessions and trail riding sessions.
