"I didn't know what I didn't know!" Mountain biking is a skill intensive sport. No less than sports like skiing, horse back riding or rock climbing. To have fun, you have to feel fairly safe. To be safe, you have to ride well. To ride well, no matter what level of riding you do, you have to have a set of fundamental skills in your tool kit.
We help riders gain those skills. From novice riders with little/no experience to riders with years of riding, a skills clinic can be a great benefit. Mountain biking is more than just "riding a bike".
"Skills and Maneuvers." What's the difference?
To put it simply, Skills are the building blocks for maneuvers. For example. Knowing how to use your brakes correctly is a SKILL Using your brakes in addition to proper body positioning, timing, directional control and terrain awareness are all components that you use to corner at high speed. Hitting a corner at high speed is a MANEUVER. At EBG we believe everyone, EVERYONE, should take our Fundamental Skills Clinic. Whether an experienced rider or total beginner, we find almost everyone lacks some of the fundamental skills required to be the best they can be. This doesn't mean one is a "bad" rider. Just that there are a few things many of us can do that will make us better riders!
At EBG we feel that to get the best results from your instruction that taking clinics, in small groups, regularly over the course of a few weeks. In our experience it is the best way to learn and retain the information we pass onto to you. However that isn't always possible if you are from away and only here for a short time. For those who are short on time we offer our clinics in more intensive 4hr sessions. Click on the buttons below for more info,
