Bike Park 101

Bike Park 101 is an intro clinic tailored for first-time downhill mountain bike park riders looking to get a taste of the park. If you’re comfortable riding a bike on pavement, we’ll have you loving our easy cruising trails and learning areas, despite the impression the big jumps at the base of the Park might give.

In a 2-hour session, our certified instructors will get you up to speed on the proper stance and body position, as well as elementary downhill bike control. You'll get started on the easy trails so you can get a feel for the excitement.

All our group lessons have no more than four people per instructor, which means you get more of what you want - mileage, attention, value.
