- Mountain Biking for Beginners
July 10, 2017
6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Have you been intrigued by all the talk of Duluth’s amazing COGGS trails, but you’re a bit concerned about heading out on the trails on your own? This class is a great introduction to the fun sport of mountain biking!
In this class, you will learn how to ride your mountain bike safely, what supplies to bring when you ride, and basic body positioning on the bike, so you can be balanced and stable as you go uphill, downhill, and around corners.
We will be practicing skills outdoors, in an open area. Only for those people who are interested, at the end of class we’ll go for a short ride on a small section of a COGGS trail.
Patient and supportive instruction. You will go home with solid basic mountain biking skills and knowledge. We will also send you home with some maps of the trails in our area.
You should know how to ride a bike, but this class is totally intended for BEGINNERS!
Best for Ages…
18 and up
You should bring…
Your mountain bike that has been recently tuned up and is in good working order. Wear clothing appropriate for being outdoors on a bike (lycra is not necessary!). Helmet required.
UPDATE! This class has been moved to the Lower Spirit Mountain Chalet, right off Grand Avenue (8551 Grand Ave, Duluth, MN)
