The simple techniques to stop you getting stuck in difficult terrain.
Join us for a focus on the tools that will help get you through rougher terrain, including roots, rock gardens and ruts / washed out trail, with small drops. We will cover:
How to get your wheels over those tricky rocks and roots without smashing your pedals.
The different techniques between:
going slow, balancing, and picking a line.
riding faster, smooth, and "floating" straight through.
Bike setup and how suspension works.
We will stay on blue trails, with challenges where each participant is able to choose how much to push themselves. We will customise to the desires and skills of the class, working towards conquering more challenging terrain.
You MUST have attended the A Solid Base clinic before taking part in this clinic. 1xx courses do not have a prerequisite. All others can only be attended after completing '102 A Solid Base'.
You MUST be present from the start of the clinic. If you miss our safety talk we are not able to have you join the group. This is for everyone's well-being, and is a requirement enforced on us that we can’t make exceptions for. We suggest arriving at least 15 minutes early to ensure you and your bike are prepared and ready to go on time.
You will need to provide your own bike.
This course is targeted at adults, but we allow children to come along if they are accompanied by a ticket-holding parent and find this works well.
Requires 3 attendees for the event to run, or the event will be rescheduled.
