MTB – Trail Techniques- *Skills & Trail Series

Our discounted community ed skills series offered spring 2024! This class is a great way to tap into improving your riding with valuable and engaging mtb skills, drills  and progressing to trail application. Truckee MTB Skills Clinics brought to you by Sierra College Community Education are only offered in the spring/summer. Varying Skills are covered each week

An extension from the original mountain bike fundamentals series, this class is for anyone eager to build their mountain biking skills and progress to be more efficient and confident on the trail. It is not required that you have taken the previous course. We’ll use ramps and cones to emphasize essential fundamentals first and then progress those skills to more intermediate maneuvers. Series includes some trail application as well as engaging and valuable skills and drills off trail.
