Erin was amazing! For a beginner class, she had the perfect mix of challenging us while make sure we were still enjoying ourselves! Her instructions and demonstrations were easy to follow and she definitely helped build confidence in everyone in the class through her constant feedback and encouragement! This was my second class with Shred Sisters and I’m certain I’ll be back to take another one soon.
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!!! 🙂 – Joanna Maurice
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 came to the course struggling with my climbing and cornering. With the instruction on body position, technique and a ton of encouragement, I’m leaving as a stronger, more confident rider & climber.
