Ages

Ages 10+

Day and Time

Tuesday, 3:30–5:00pm • Skill development day. Tuesdays are set aside to practice cornering, bike body separation, rolling over obstacles, and handling the controls of the bike in open areas. At times we will ride into wooded areas. This is a perfect time for all riders, beginners and advanced, to enjoy the challenges of mountain biking, learn some new skills and meet other riders. (Minimum age is 10 with exceptions after Instructor Assessment.)

Wednesday, 3:30–5:00pm • Focus on rider skills at our skills park area and trails right here on The Clark Sports Center property, which are designed for instruction. This session is more technical and challenging than
Mondays, and may not be for everyone. Mountain bike trails are rocky, with roots, with ride over obstacles, narrow and can be steep.

Friday, 3:30–5:00pm • Trail ride day! We will ride from The Clark Sports Center and typically ride a local trail off of The Clark Sports Center property, which will include at least one long climb and descent. This is the day we put your conditioning and skill to the test. This is not a day for beginners!

Advanced Rider Trips out of the area will be announced on Wednesdays and through email throughout the session. Last Ride, October 30, is our rider’s party with pizza and movie after a ride for everyone who participated in our 7 week program. Parents are welcome.
