This four week Beginner program is for women who have no experience on a mountain bike and would like to learn the fundamentals of riding in a fun, safe, professional, and supportive environment.
This program is offered one evening per week, for four consecutive weeks. Each week we will focus on a different skill. The lesson will start with an hour of skill development followed by a trail ride to practice what we’ve learned.
This weekly program is the perfect way to have an overview of mountain biking, and to improve your skills, to be more confident on your bike, and have fun with your new Shred Sisters friends!

Testimonial: Before taking this course, I thought of myself as a beginner/intermediate rider and came into it wanting to learn a few specific things. Well, I learned those few things within the first couple hours, and the rest of the weekend was bonus learning in my eyes! Lynsey was an absolute delight to have as an instructor. She was very detailed and clear when she explained things, had a great sense of humour, and was an absolute badass on her bike! It was amazing to watch her demonstrate different techniques – she made it all look so easy. It’s obvious that she has spent a lot of time developing and honing her skills. I hope I can rip down the trails like that in the future!
I really enjoyed Audrey’s beginner course! She was very patient and gave great instructions, especially for the technical aspect of the course!! I learned so much this weekend to help improve my off road riding and am excited to apply everything I’ve learned on my next ride!! Especially smoothly rolling over logs in my way!!! 🙂
