Feedback from past clinics:
“If you are desiring to further your MTB skills, this is the perfect clinic for you. You’ll receive informative information and have an opportunity to put into practice what you learn. Friendly, encouraging staff. When I first arrived, I was timid but by the end of the clinic, I was very encouraged and left with an “I can do this” attitude! Had a blast and met very nice people. So, conquer your fear and join in on future clinics. You’ll be glad you did. Thank you Non Dot for all you do. Looking forward to your next clinic”
“Excellent clinic to take me to the next level! All of the instructors were very approachable and willing to share their knowledgeable. I was able to see immediate improvement in my riding when I implemented the skills that I learned!”
“I had a great time, and came away from every drill with something new to incorporate into future rides and races. I’ll have more control, a smoother ride, and have more fun out on the trails after this. Awesome!”
