About this event:

Created by Lilias

East Burke, Vermont

This is a small group clinic with loads of opportunity to learn, meet new friends, and ride world class trails. The weekend will kick-off with a casual meet-and-greet at Vermont MTB Tours headquarters on Friday night so students and coaches can get a chance to mingle with drinks and appetizers provided. Transition Bikes will have a full demo fleet of bikes on site for the weekend for any interested participants to demo for free. On Saturday and Sunday we will split into groups for a student to coach ratio of 7:1 and we’ll spend 6-7 hours working on skills on the bike each day. The coaches’ progressive approach to teaching starts students in a low-consequence setting giving them time to focus on proper body position, timing, and execution of fundamental and dynamic skills. Then they methodically add the next level of complexity for each skill so that their students are powered by the confidence of these successful successions. All groups will hit the trails for practical application and countless high-fives each day too. On Saturday night we are offering a unique healthy, locally-sourced, family-style dining experience for the participants. In this private party, participants can relive the excitement and fun from day one over a delicious meal prepared and served by professional chef (and fellow mountain biker), Jason Michaelides.
