What to Expect & Bring

Bikes
Please bring a fully functional mountain bike. Cross-country, trail, and all-mountain type mountain bikes will work just fine. The cross-country style trails used for the clinic are rated beginner to advance. We have a limited number of Giant Fathom 1 bikes to rent. Contact us to reserve a bike.

Gear
Helmets, protective eyewear, and gloves are required for all participants. Elbow and knee pads are optional. Flat pedals are highly recommended for learning new skills. However, feel free to use your clipless pedals if you are confident into clippingget in and out of the pedals. Please carry a pack that includes a spare tube, water, and snacks for yourself.

Skills Sessions
Skill sessions will mostly take place in a flat zone. The skills introduced to riders will depend on experience and previous training. The skills range from fundamentals, cornering (flat vs berm, slow vs fast), wheel lifts, and technical terrain skills.

Guided Rides
All rides will start from Tahoe XC. Rides will range from 5 to 15 miles depending on experience and fitness. You can expect a 500 to 2000 ft elevation gain. The trails surrounding Tahoe XC are mostly smooth with some rocky, technical terrain. Your coach will pick a ride suitable for your group’s ability and fitness.
