I loved my course with shred sisters. Audrey is an amazing teacher! She explains things clearly and effectively, giving you the tools to take your riding to the next level. You just may be surprised at what you can do…I was, and am having all the more fun because of it!
Outstanding experience! Am more confident, and more importantly, inspired!
I liked how Melanie let us do a skill over a few times – that was incredibly helpful and gave me the confidence to keep trying and hopefully figure out each skill as we went. I also loved that she showed us first so we could see what it should look like some of the rooty trails/hills were out of my league but I was totally comfortable walking my bike when I needed to. Melanie was an incredible instructor
The day long beginner’s course with Shred Sisters was so much fun! I can’t believe how much my confidence and skill improved in one day. Our instructor Jackie was really great and made everyone feel comfortable and excited about being out together in Fish Creek Park. I learned so much from her and I would 100% recommend this course.
