About This Activity

You've found the Girlz Gone Riding Edition of Ninja Mountain Bike Skills Basics Clinic (morning session).

If you're not already a member of GGR, check 'em out here ... All women are encouraged to join us at this clinic!

Maybe you're completely new to mountain biking, or perhaps you're a little more experienced, but you've never been taught the fundamentals of riding off-road. Possibly you've tried some technical trails, but lacked confidence and scared yourself a few times?
We're taking our clinics back to the trails of Malibu Creek State Park. Our Mountain Bike Skills :: Basics course will give you the core skills to get out in the woods tackling technical trails with confidence and commitment.
Following training you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and a boost in confidence. You'll understand how changes in your body position, footwork and where you are looking affect the way your bike behaves on single track trails. You'll be able to tackle steeper terrain, corner with greater control and negotiate small trail obstacles with ease.
