Preparation For Your Lesson or Clinic
Ready to Learn
Check your ego at the door. Bring a positive attitude and an open mind.
Helmet & Armour
Helmets are mandatory (must be less than 5 years old). Knee and/or shin pads and elbow pads are highly encouraged, along with gloves and riding glasses.
The weather doesn't always cooperate. Be prepared, whether it's a rain jacket, change of clothes, bug spray or sunscreen, etc. Please bring a mask/face covering & handsanitizer.
Your Mountain Bike
Must have 2" treaded tires, disc brakes and at least front suspension—the more current the bike, the better. Please ensure your bike is in proper working order. If in doubt, take it into your local bike shop for a tune-up.
Water & Snacks
Don't let hanger spoil a great lesson. Always pack extra water and snacks for both riding and for after your lesson.
Bring a small backpack/hydration pack and make sure to pack a spare inner tube (that fits your wheel size).
Flat pedals are recommended but ride whatever you usually do.
