Mountain Biking - FR

Grab your bike and get ready for a quick release from hectic campus life. Cruise along double and single track trails, grind up hills, splash through creek crossing, pause at scenic vistas and explore the local trails in style. Along the way we'll cover essential cycling skills for clearing logs, navigating downhill terrain, climbing hills and getting the most out of your bike. Learn trail etiquette, trailside bike repairs and other useful tips to keep you and your bike working well together. Time in the saddle will improve your bike technique, strength and confidence. High instructor to participant ratio ensures flexibility for splitting in to small groups to match ability levels and ambitions. No extensive mountain biking experience necessary, but students should be very comfortable on a bike as this course is true trail riding. Don't have a bike? Don't fret! COE can lend you a bike during class days for an additional $60 fee. Attendance Policy: You can miss one class and still receive credit.
