Fundamentals For All

Beginner Mountain Bike Clinic

Next, explore better bike/body positioning for cornering: tight vs flow and slow vs high speed. This clinic is open to all levels of riders: men, women and kids ages 12 and older. The clinic will end with yoga on the deck.

FAQ

Which bike should I bring? Tahoe XC terrain includes mostly mellow terrain from fire roads, meandering single-track, and a few rocky trails. A large range of mountain bikes would work well for this type of terrain: XC, trail, and enduro style mountain bikes. Check over your bike before the clinic: tires, brakes, gears, shocks, and frame. It’s no fun dealing with mechanicals when learning new skills!

Do I need protective gear? All participants will be required to wear a helmet, gloves, and protective eyewear (glasses or goggles). Knee and elbow pads are optional.

Flats or clipless pedals? We highly recommend attending skills clinics with flat pedals as it allows for learning some skills easier and safer. However, if clipless are your true love then we can make that work.

Pack your bag! Participants are required to carry their own water and nutrition. Participants need to carry their own spare tubes.

If you have questions, feel free to contact us at ski@tahoexc.org.
