We’ve wrapped up an awesome 2020 season of our Mountain Bike Skill Builder instruction classes! This year we helped over 100 riders gain the skills and confidence they needed to become better mountain bikers with classes in Portland, Gorham, and Falmouth. We’re already excited to expand our offerings for next year, and we’ve got some fun ideas up our sleeves for fun winter classes as well. Stay tuned!
The MTB Skill Builder Series is offered on Tuesday & some Thursday & Friday evenings in the Greater Portland area. Classes are available for any level of rider from the absolute beginner to the advanced rider. Instruction is provided by PMBIA-certified and experienced instructors who know Maine riding well. Sessions are limited to 5 students in order to allow for high-quality instruction and safety. Fundamentals 1 & 2 Classes are great for new riders or those with experience looking to refresh their foundation. Advanced Sessions are great for riders looking to refine specific skills like cornering, steep transitions & technical sections, & flow trails. These 90 minute sessions are held at different locations around Greater Portland & will reinforce what you learned in the classes in real on-trail situations. Classes provide ample opportunities for group discussion and practice of specific skills, and are great way to meet new trail riding friends too!
