Clinic Dates: August 17 - 18, 2019
Class I - II | Cabin
2 days, 1 night
Join us and Minnesotan mountain biking guide and instructor Tara (as well as her husband and business partner, Byron) of North Star Mountain Bike Guides for a women's mountain biking clinic in beautiful Cuyuna, Minnesota! We'll spend the weekend learning skills to take to the trails including safety, body positioning, navigating obstacles, climbing, descending, and cornering in a positive and encouraging environment. This two day clinic will teach us strong mountain biking skills to allow us to explore this exciting sport in a safe, confident way.
Skill levels will be assessed at the beginning of each workshop and the clinic will be taught according to the needs and experience of the participants. This is geared towards beginners, though we do recommend having been mountain biking before. We are holding 2 skills workshops prior to the weekend clinic. At night, we're staying in stilted cabins on a beautiful mining lake. After our first day of mountain biking, we'll relax by the campfire, on the porches of our cabins, or on/near the water -- whatever sounds best to you!
A mountain bike is required for this workshop. Rentals are available for $100.
Every AdventurHER Travel trip is led by a professional local guide and Dedicated Adventure Manager (our DAM Girls).
Activity level: Class II; involves full days of physical activity, but at an easy pace. We recommend you have been mountain biking at least once before with rudimentary skills. Evening clinics are offered June 27 and August 13, here.
Day One: Saturday, August 17
Arriving at 11:30 at Red Raven Cafe, we will meet each other and enjoy lunch before grabbing any rental bikes and head to the trails! We’ll do a brief skills assessment and then spend the afternoon learning new skills to take out on a guided ride. After the ride, we’ll return to our cabins and settle in, having dinner and relaxing on the porches, lakeside, or next to the camp fire. Feel free to bring a standup paddle board, kayak, inner tube, or other non-powered watercraft; some rentals available onshore.
Day Two: Sunday, August 18
Waking up to an optional informal sunrise yoga session followed by an early breakfast, we’ll start our second workshop. After a full morning of learning and riding, we’ll head back to Red Raven for lunch, celebrating our new skills, confidence, sore muscles, and a wildly fun weekend in Minnesota.
