1. The most important thing about buying a new bike is to make sure it fits. The only way you'll know if the bike is right for you is to size up the bike and make sure that the bike's geometry matches your body's geometry. Ask questions and do some research.

2. If possible, try to find a shop that will let you demo the bike on real dirt. Five minutes in a parking lot won't cut it. You wouldn't buy a car without a real world test drive, and a bike should be no different.
3. Don't belive the hype. Just because your favorite rider or best friend rides a certain bike, that doesn't mean that's the best one for you. Have an open mind and be realistic about your needs and ability.

    COURAGEOUS WOMEN OF DIRT - Rock N' Road Cyclery - Orange County, California - Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, Anaheim Hills, Irvine

    WHO
    BEGINNER - Little to no experience? This clinic is for you! Learn bike set up, balance, braking, shifting, cornering and navigating obstacles. There will be a limited supply of Specialized demo bikes that you can use!

    INTERMEDIATE - For those who have experience and ride regularly. Advance your technical skills. Navigate sand, rocks, loose terrain and tackle drop offs.

    READY TO RACE - For anyone who has basic mountain bike skills and is interested in racing. No race experience necessary! Learn to navigate the course through a pro's eyes. A pro will teach you how to pick lines, corner faster, start, pass, and finish strong. You will also learn race etiquette, strategy and proper nutrition.

    All clinics will be taught on the "Over The Hump" course at beautiful Irvine Lake. The "Over The Hump" course is an awesome course for beginner racers. It is short, fast and fun! If you're interested in racing the "Over The Hump" series, this is your one chance to pre-ride the course before the first race on May 21.
