Testimonial:Participating in the Shred Sisters beginner mountain biking course was incredibly valuable. I learned so many new skills and became much more comfortable on my bike. The course provided a great foundation to mountain biking which I will be able to build on into the future. My instructor Jackie was very knowledgeable and brought so much energy to our class which kept us all engaged and comfortable as we learned. Not only did I learn so many great biking skills but I also got the opportunity to meet like-minded women to bike with in the future. I had such an incredible time throughout this course and can’t wait to continue hitting the trails on my bike! I very much look forward to continuing on with my skill development through additional Shred Sister courses in the future.
