There will be a minimum number of 4 attendees for the clinic to go on. This clinic is for Procrastinating Pedaler Members only. If you are not a member yet we can fix that! :) I will have membership forms with me and we can get you signed up with the club BEFORE the 2 day clinic begins. The Pedaler's are a great local cycling club with lots of road and mountain rides to join in on, the members are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful! There are also the club meetings, after and during ride coffee get-togethers and 4th of July and Christmas parties to look forward to Please arrive 15 minutes early to get signed up. We like to start on time when a ride is scheduled.

The Procrastinating Pedaler's Beginner Mountain Bike Skills Clinic is a fun and un-scary way to get your mountain bike skills started, updated or just to get comfortable on the mountain bike again. The clinic is two consecutive day, of approximately 3 hours each day. The first day we will start at White's Creek Trail-head. The second day is right down the road at Thomas Creek. DAY 1 will begin with a talk, we will go over the components of a mountain bike; what they do and how they behave.We'll also go over everything you need to know to be safe on your bike, how to do on the spot repairs to get you going again as well as recognizing and being prepared for different types of mountain bike terrain. How to distinguish and ride through obstacles. We'll also cover how to become mentally and physically comfortable riding varying widths of trail.We will practice riding with clip-less pedals in the dirt so now's the time to learn how to get in and out of those #$* pedals. After that we will learn and practice how and when to shift and how to brake without ruining the trail for others; so nice of you! We will have time for a short break for lunch or a snack, so please bring one if you get hungry or for energy. The end of the first clinic will be our first mountain bike ride and it will be easy and teach you on the fly skills on your bike. It is important to attend the first clinic as these skills build on each other, you won't be ready for the second day if you miss the first.

DAY 2 START 9:30am. We will be in a location just down the road from where we held our first clinic, at Thomas Creek. We will start this ride on a dirt road and climb to our destination where we will learn how to do a water crossing! Oh, so exciting and fun!! This is a great photo op so please bring your phone/camera. From the water crossing we will go to our first grown-up mountain bike ride, yes, sweet single track! You're gonna love it and it's all downhill from here. We will stay together, we will go as slow as needed, and we will make it down to the bottom with flying colors! I KNOW you CAN do this :) This is graduation day after all and from here the mountain biking world will be your oyster! By the time we are finished on the second day you will have covered many of the situations you'll come across on your mountain bike. You will also have the skills to ride with your friends or on your own on a mountain bike ride. Please join in for our summer Procrastinating Pedaler's beginner mountain bike skills clinic! It's a great way to start your summer of mountain bike rides. Let me know if you have any questions and I am really looking forward to meeting all of you:)
