2018 Clinic Program (PDF) – Coming Soon!

With miles of public multi-use trails trail on Tahoe NF, Empire Mine State Park, and Bear Yuba Land Trust, our skill clinic is designed to inspire, strengthen, build confidence and camaraderie among women.  Our passion is to spread the word that mountain biking is a fun sport for everyone, and is a great connectivity to the outdoors.

Mountain biking enriches your mind, body, and soul.  Learning bike handling with other women increases confidence and gives a better sense of enjoyment and trail love when riding your bike.  Our three certified mountain bike instructors are from California and have a fun program for women to improve your learning experience at various skill stations, each with various background to teach beginners the basics, to fine tune those improvements for advanced riders.  When off your bike, you’ll be enjoying our gourmet meals, and our Nevada County hospitality.  Please be sure to complete our 2 surveys at our event website to help us plan.  There is a MTB Skill Level Guide pdf to help you when completing the MTB Experience survey.

This event will be canceled in the event of snow.

No refunds will be offered for this event.

Our instructors are so inspiring and love to engage other women riders to feel confident and know how to handle their bikes on various terrains and conditions.  You can fine tune bike handling techniques to learning the very basic, body position for various kinds of riding, and more.  Our instructors are from Northern California who instruct and coach, race downhill, enduro, cross-country, cyclo-cross, and are part of the movement of interscholastic youth mountain biking as a recognized and awesome sport.
