Melanie is such an awesome teacher, very knowledgable, stopped and talked regarding all the sessions, the group was all the same skill and I feel like I could master so much more than before. All the skills have given me a greater confidence and makes riding around so much easier.
I did the beginner’s mountain biking workshop in Calgary, and it was fantastic. I really appreciated that I was able to do the course so close to home, and I now know some places I can easily go back to practice the skills I learned. The small class size was great – it enabled our group to get to know one another and really cheer each other on! I also felt that because of our small group size, we were able to get much better individual feedback from the instructor. I would most definitely recommend this course! -Leah Scott
Loves the program I feel so much more confident than I did before. Get to down to the basics that you can apply anywhere. I also love that it’s all women learning together, it made it very comfortable. Would for sure take a course again.
Beginners’ Program was amazing!! I’m so excited about mountain biking now. I’m very excited to practice and developed the learned skills. I loved the program!!! Will be looking forward to signing up for another program with Shred Sisters. – Carol
