SINGLETRACK 201 is a program that teaches intermediate mountain bike skills. It is suitable for both youth and adults that are experienced riders, physically and technically ready to take their skills to the next level. Learning and mastering the skills in this program will provide participants the ability to ride most of the trails in our area parks with confidence. Like the Singeltrack 101 program, some participants may repeat this program several times before being ready to progress. Some skills at this level may take significant practice to master. Like the 101 programs, we offer this course for youth and women only, with an adult co-ed version offered upon request.
For the 2016 season, these programs will be offered in Victor at Dryer Road Park. This program is 12 hours, taught over six weeks, for 2 hour sessions, once a week.
Program Cost: $155
