Women's MTB Session

If you're new to the sport of mountain biking and would like a safe, non-judgmental, fun place to lean some new skills, we're here for YOU! This session is run by local women who are thrilled to share some tips and tricks with you. None are "certified" instructors, but we've been riding for years and are happy to introduce you to some of the skills that have helped us to become better riders and happier people. 

The campground at the Royal Gorge Park offers a wealth of learning terrain, including dirt road, singletrack, and technical features. We'll play for a few hours and learn together. Please choose the class that best fits your current ability level. 

All participants will be required to bring and wear a mask, and you will be asked to sign a waiver. A suggestion donation of $5 per person is optional. 

Date: 06/14/2020 (Sun.)

Location: Royal Gorge Park East Ridge Campground
