Level Up Workshop Series
What if there was a way to pick up right where you left off, or better yet, continue levelling up your riding skills and confidence throughout the winter?
With the departure of the riding season, most riders park their mountain bike for the winter months, resorting to Zwfit or mindless trainer miles. But when the spring rolls around again, many find the first little while of riding the trails challenging and spend a lot of time just trying to build back up the skills and confidence they worked so hard all last summer to get. Keep your skills sharp this winter and your hands warm in the comfort of Joyride 150's indoor facility!
The Level Up Workshop Series is designed for intermediate/advanced riders looking to level up their bike skills this winter. Led by the experts at Minii Adventures, you'll keep improving your MTB skills in a safe and fun environment. Don't let your skills rust when you can join us to sharpen them instead!

What you will Learn in The Level Up
This Workshop Series aims to give you the space to practice different skills and stations, but our professional coaches will meet you where you're at. We plan out the workshops based on the registration forms and the skills you select.
We spend about 30 min on each area per session and revisit them each week. Stations can include pumping/rhythm/flow (i.e. pump track), jumping, skinnies, Cross Country course, slow speed skills & bike handling (i.e. bunnyhops, track stands, drills for bike handling & control).

What past Riders have to say....
I have riding for a while and have done a few classes with Charlotte, every time I have come out on the other end having improved my skills and techniques either by learning new approaches or fixing bad habits. Charlotte classes are a joy to attend and she has found that ability to keep riders with a wide and varied skillsets engaged while imparting skills that will help them in the long run.
Charlotte is an amazing professional mountain bike coach. Her knowledge, experience and ability to break down technique into small easy to understand pieces is fantastic. The private lesson that I booked with her was well worth it and I will utilize the follow up email to practice what I learned. Charlotte makes learning to ride fun!
