Beginning Mountain Biking
March 24, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Mountain biking is a great way to exercise while connecting with nature—but hurtling down a mountain on a bike might seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before. This March, Bays Mountain Park is offering the Beginning Mountain Biking Series to teach you the tips and tricks every beginner needs to know.
This three-session series will give you the opportunity to learn from experienced riders, ask questions, and develop your skills. The first two sessions will start in the Discovery Theater before moving outside to learn a skill. The last session will be a six-mile group ride along, Chestnut, Big Oak and Chinquapin Trails, with experienced riders sharing trail and maneuver tricks to keep you moving safely.
This program is brought to you in partnership with Achieving Balance Cycling and Reedy Creek Bicycles LLC.
Topics covered —
March 17: Equipment needed, bike language, trail types and etiquette
March 24: Equipment maintenance, what to wear, what to pack
March 31: Where to ride, how to build a trail
All sessions run 3 to 5 p.m. and are free to Park members (must show membership card at the gift shop) and $3 per session for non-members. Preregistration for the Beginning Mountain Biking Series is available at Eventbrite.com. There are 56 spots per session, and 28 are open for preregistration. Everyone must check in at the Nature Center gift shop for each session.
