Scheduled Ride clinics

Previous Clinic Example

What/When /Where : SATURDAY OCTOBER 29th noon-3pm at Dillon State Park, in Nashport OH (1 hr east of Columbus) at the beach parking lot.  Inclement weather date: Saturday November 5th at 10am.

Why: The goal is to help you to get more comfortable and therefore having more fun on your bike.

How: The plan is to start by making sure you are set up well on your mtn bike. Heath Boedeker (my fiance and owner of HWB Outside products) is an expert in that area and will help.  Then, we'll cover the basics of riding positions, braking, and cornering. We'll do skill drills that you can practice back at home as well.  Depending on time and interest, we can also cover things like shifting, climbing, descending, and various techniques of getting over obstacles.  We'll spend the last hour on a ride, where I'll spend time following each person and making suggestions.

Who: If you haven't had official instruction, I'm confident that you will benefit from these basics no matter what your riding level. If you've had prior instruction, this can be a review that will help you gauge your progress.  Alternatively, if you've had instruction and would like to cover something more specific or more advanced send me an email and we'll go from there.

COST- Special pricing of $30.00 per person! Please send me an email to let me know you'd like to sign up, and if possible send the payment at the same time through my paypal account. Both accounts are the same:  I will refund you for a personal emergency or if we reschedule due to weather and you can't make the follow up date.
