A solid technical foundation

This clinic will allow you to acquire the essential basics of bike handling: positioning and mobility, as well as the integration of braking and shifting. This course will guide you towards more autonomy in your practice: climbs, descents, and corners will no longer hold any secrets for you!

Lesson format: You will love the group lessons! The experience and energy of the group will allow you to practice all the technical concepts taught at your own pace.

Coach: Your coach will be level I certified or higher, and have 20-hour first aid training in remote areas.

Terrain: Green and blue rated cross-country trails, such as La Raph in SDM, Cassonade and Phozz in Mont Oak, 51 at Ski Bromont

What to bring ?

  • Knee protectors mandatory
  • Long gloves and elbow protection recommended
  • Mountain bike helmet
  • Sportswear adapted to the weather conditions
  • Flat-soled shoes (Vans type) or mountain bike shoes
  • Flat pedals with metal cleats or automatic pedals (clip on) for mountain bikes

Planing your day

To protect yourself from minor scrapes and injuries, Bikeskills recommends that you ALWAYS wear knee protection. Gloves, eyewear / goggles and elbow protection are also recommended, but not mandatory. Of course, a helmet is always essential, ideally a mountain bike specific helmet. A full-face helmet and chest protector for advanced and/or lift courses is also recommended, but not mandatory.

As the class will be held outdoors and we might not have access to indoor facilities, it is recommended that you check the mountain weather forecast and plan accordingly, as weather can change rapidly. It is recommended that each member of the group bring snacks and water to ensure they have enough energy to enjoy the class.

Cautionary note to participants

As we want to prepare you in advance for a great experience, here are some notes on safe mountain biking

  • Communicate your apprehensions, previous injuries and physical limitations to your coach.
  • Do not exceed your physical and technical limits.
  • All difficulties and modules are optional at all times. We can always reduce the physical and technical demands of the lesson.
  • Depending on the objective of the course, challenges will be incorporated, from the simple to the complex.
  • Before embarking on a technical section, participants must demonstrate a minimum level of mastery on flat terrain or on trails of lesser technical difficulty.
  • For a technical challenge, we stop, analyze, walk the section and then engage… or not!
