SINGLETRACK 101

SINGLETRACK 101 is a 12 hour skills based program that teaches mountain biking fundamentals. It is suitable for both youth and adults new to the sport, and experienced riders that want to get back to basics to ensure proper technique and form. Progression into the other levels relies on fitness and a solid foundation at this level, therefore, some riders (particularly young riders) may repeat this program several times before being ready to progress. We offer youth 101 programs at two different age groups (9 - 11, 12 - 15), as well as, a women's only version (see info below), and an adult co-ed version.
This program runs during the spring, summer, and fall for 6 weeks with 2 hour lessons, taught once a week. Items included in this program are listed on the right side of this page.
*Please note, that for the 2017 season we will only offer these programs in Victor at Dryer Road Park.
