BECOME A PART OF OUR FAMILY

We have been there.  That first ride.  The first time your tires hit the dirt.  The thrill as the trail starts to head down or up, or for many, the sheer terror.  Starting with simply finding balance and stability on the bike gives you a platform to explore.  Whether you have been riding for years or are just curious about what this "mountain biking" is all about, Muddy Pedals has something to offer you.

LEVEL I FUNDAMENTALS

This class is for everyone.  Whether you are new to the sport or have been riding for years, we are confident that Level 1 training is for you.  These clinics focus on balance and stability, giving us a platform on which to build the more advanced skills. 

For the newbie, you are setting yourself up for great success by starting your mountain bike adventures with a foundation of balance and stability.  Yes, most of us learned how to ride a bike as a child.  And sure, you could get on a bike and take it to the trail.  And the feelings of terror are likely to arise as soon as those tires hit the dirt.  Let us start your adventure off with confidence, instead of terror.  

For the more advanced rider, we will break your bad habits.  We all have them.  We have all been in the place where we can’t figure out what we are doing wrong and it all stems back to a simple fundamental skill.  We can help get you to the next level.

Clinics start by going over five fundamentals (neutral/ready position, front to back and side to side bike/body separation, and braking), and then we take those fundamentals for a short shred (and by shred we mean leisurely ride) on the trail.  We take our time.  We make sure you are comfortable. You won’t believe what you and your bike are capable of shredding.  

Pricing for Level 1 training is offered at $75 per 2 hour session.

 
LEVEL 2
LOG OVER CLINIC

This class is for those who have successfully completed Level 1 training. You took the clinic, the balance and stability you found on your bike is starting to feel natural and you are ready for shredfest! Ok, maybe not shredfest, but you are ready to step it up by honing the fundamentals, rolling over logs, cornering smoothly, and finding your flow.

We get warmed up by doing the fundamentals. A refresher is great for all of us, especially if we are building our skills based on this foundation. For these more advanced skills, we will break them all down into key points. Each of these skills will have progressions, so no matter where you are on the spectrum of shred, your instructor can make sure the progression of the skill is right for you.

Here, we will be working on honing the "Log Over".  This is a front wheel lift and rear wheel lift combo.  It will be broken down and progressions will be made available no matter where you are on the skill spectrum.  

Pricing for Level 2 - Log Over training is offered at $75 per 2 hour session.

 
LEVEL 2
CORNERING AND DROPS

You have been shredding and honing your skills. The fundamentals are starting to become second nature. Those obstacles on the trail that you “would never do” (or at least never do gracefully) are starting to seem obtainable. In the Level 2 Cornering and Drops Clinic, we will give you the tools you need to conquer those obstacles . A roll down lunge, some high speed cornering, a rear wheel lift- these are all tools that you can have and use on the trail.

Just as with Level 1 and Level 2 - Log Over, we get warmed up by doing the fundamentals. A refresher is great for all of us, especially if we are building our skills based on this foundation. For these more advanced skills, we will break them all down into key points. Each of these skills will have progressions, so no matter where you are on the spectrum of shred, your instructor can make sure the progression of the skill is right for you.

Pricing for Level 2 - Cornering and Drops training is offered at $75 per 2 hour session.

 
LEVEL 2
RATCHETING, PEDAL PUNCH, WHEELIES

This class is for those who have successfully completed Level 1 training. You took the clinic, the balance and stability you found on your bike is starting to feel natural and you are ready for shredfest! Ok, maybe not shredfest, but you are ready to step it up by honing the fundamentals and finding your flow.

We get warmed up by doing the fundamentals. A refresher is great for all of us, especially if we are building our skills based on this foundation. For these more advanced skills, we will break them all down into key points. Each of these skills will have progressions, so no matter where you are on the spectrum of shred, your instructor can make sure the progression of the skill is right for you.

Here, we will be working on ratcheting (partial pedal strokes), pedal punch wheelie (getting the front wheelie off of the ground by just using the pedals), and wheelies.  This can sound overwhelming to newer riders.  Please know that this is for any rider who has taken Level I.  Everything is tailored to where you currently are in your abilities and comfort levels.

Pricing for Level 2 - Ratcheting, Pedal Punch, and Wheelies training is offered at $75 per 2 hour session.
