Wednesday night clinics
- Who is it for? A “novice” rider who wishes to progress from beyond “beginner” into “intermediate”
- Location : Bromont, Mont Oak trails
- Meeting point : Main parking next to Canael Bakery. All coaches wear black Bikeskills coach jerseys
- Time : from 6pm to 7:30 pm.
- Please be 15 minutes early so we can meet and greet you, with a bike check.
- We plan riding the following trails: Wam-Bam, Cassonade, Phooz and Yak Attack
Description : This clinic will allow you to acquire the essential basis of bike riding. Once you have acquired the proper position and mobility, your progress will be faster, more efficient, and you will reduce the risk of injury.
Lesson format : You will love group lessons! The experience and energy the group will provide allows you to practice all the technical concepts being taught at your ease.
Concepts : In a green and blue terrain, you will learn the proper position and mobility as well as the integration of essential braking and shifting skills. This clinic will allow you to be autonomous in your practice: climbs, descents and cornering will no longer hold any secrets for you!
