Need a bike or want to try a better bike than your old beater? If you need a bike, we can provide a loaner bike, but you need to let us know ahead of time.

The three beginner level clinics in the Fall are geared to build skills for the next level clinic.

Level 1 occurred 10/28 at Fantasy Island

Level 2 occurred 11/05/23 at Fantasy Island

Level 3 will be at Sweetwater Preserve, December 03, 2023, 1-4pm.

COST: $20 SDMB member; $60 Non member ($40 goes to a one year SDMB membership, so your next classes will be just $20). Again, thanks to the Harris Foundation.

These clinics are made possible by a generous support grant from the Harris Foundation so you can get top notch certified coaches for a fraction of the cost. Each 3 hour class will have no more than 10 riders and 2 coaches so there will be lots of 1-1 coaching time!

Want to step up your game? Intermediate skills clinics will be scheduled next Spring 2024. Stay tuned!
