Sept 20: Next Women's MTB Clinic

Last Updated: 15.Aug.2019

Back for summer 2019, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center is offering a series of free introductory/beginner mountain bike clinics & group rides for women. Clinics will focus on learning and honing mountain bike skills in a safe, supportive environment. Participants must be at least 18 years old. No previous mountain bike experience is necessary, but participants must be able to competently and safely ride a bicycle. 

Our next clinic will be on Friday, September 20 from 5:30 - 7:00pm. Sessions will take place once a month from June through September; see dates below.

Clinic Dates:
Wednesday, June 12th from 5:30 - 7:00pm
Thursday, July 18th from 5:30 - 7:00pm
Thursday, August 15 from 5:30 - 7:00pm
Friday, September 20 from 5:30 - 7:00pm

To ensure that everyone can learn to ride in a safe environment, each session is capped at 20 people. Reserve your place here.

Cost:
Clinic attendance is FREE (registration required)! However, participants must be prior members of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center. Memberships are free for Craftsbury and Albany residents. Individual day membership for non-resident adults is $10 (our equivalent of a day trail pass). For more information on day and annual membership, go here.

Equipment:
All participants need to have the following: running/athletic shoes, active outdoor clothing, a water bottle, a bike helmet, and a safe and functional mountain bike. Helmets are absolutely mandatory. Don't have a bike or helmet? We will be offering low-priced bike rentals to those participating in the clinic for $7 per session. All bike rentals include helmets.
