We are excited to be hosting another round of MTB classes for people who want to learn more about mountain biking. If you're new to the sport or wish you had a better skill set to be faster and better, you might be interested in attending one or more of these classes we've put together - led by proficient riders and held at Palos. Classes are free and include a skill-appropriate group ride. We are asking people to register by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get a good head count.
If you can comfortably ride all of Palos without getting off or feeling in over your head, we might be covering topics you are already familiar with - so if you want to be faster and better than you already are, maybe just ride MORE.
But feel free to stop in and please share this flyer with any friends you are hoping to get addicted to the sport. http://cambr.org/SMF/gallery/298_26_04_12_11_57_35.jpg
In a nutshell, here's what the flyer says: MTB 101
: Riders with no experience riding dirt trails, over obstacles or terrain. MTB 102:
Riders who are comfortable with riding a bike off-road but ready to start cornering, obstacles and more difficult terrain. If you’re an experienced Roadie, start here!MTB 103:
Riders who have ridden single track but want to learn more tips and tricks on riding local terrain faster and better. What should you bring?
A helmet, no exceptions! A bike with fat, knobby tires. Your bike must be in good working order. Your brakes and shifters should work and you should understand how to use them.
All courses are offered at 6:30 PM in the Wolf Roads Parking lot (last parking lot) off of 95th Street in Palos Forest Preserve in Willow Springs, IL.
