The weekend starts with a  Welcome Soiree at Gerick Cycle & Sports in Trail: 15% off shopping, bike maintenance seminars, bike fit basics.  Saturday we focus on the fundamental biking skills; body position, gearing, braking, line selection and steering.  Starting in a controlled environment we will help you build confidence and tackle new challenges then take these skills to the trails and put it all together.  The day wraps up at Revolution with some more shopping, apres and video analysis from the day.  Sunday is an opportunity to get milage with feedback from the coach ensuring you leave with your new skills dialed and ready to shred this summer.
