Sunday, September 18th, PROGRESSING YOUR SKILLS COURSE – 9am – 4pm
Have you been mountain biking before, but finding it hard to progress on your own? Maybe you just need a few helpful tips and tricks from a professional MTB guide and a crew of other like-minded and determined women to help bring you to the next level.

– Working on proper bike/ body and foot position for descents, ascents and corners.
– Learning bike handling, braking and foot bracing for easier movements.
– Getting into terrain that requires steeper roll downs and front wheel lifts.
– Climbing technical terrain that requires rear wheel lifts and how to navigate through rocky trails.
– Cornering at both slower and higher speeds.
– Tailor this course even more & let us know what you really want to work on and we’ll implement it into the day’s lesson!

Coaches:

April Lee – BICP Level 1 and working on Level 2 – Nursing
April has been biking and coaching for decades throughout Colorado, but especially in the Chaffee County region. Progress on technical terrain with her guidance.
Kelley Wren – BICP Level 1 – WFA
VNTRbirds founder and co-owner, Kelley has been inspiring women to get outside as long as she can remember. Whether it be on your bike, in the snow, camping or lacing up your hiking boots, Kelley is down for the adventure too. She created VNTRbirds to make sure women are educated, confident and self-reliant while recreating in beautiful Colorado! Kelley’s favorite rides are on tacky dirt, ripping up fast berms on the downhill
