    Only one week left to register for the International Mountainbike Instructor Certification (IMIC) courses at Brown County State Park! This is the only course offered here in the Midwest that is open to the public. Courses are filling quickly and only a few spots remain for the one-day, Level 1 Ride Leader and 3-day, Level II Instructor certification.


    Many folks ask themselves.. why should I get certified? and, when will I use it?


    The answers are simple. Getting your IMIC certification not only teaches YOU to become a better ride, but will give you the knowledge and skills to help others EVERY TIME you hit the trail! Do you find yourself encouraging others (even strangers) when you're out riding? Do your friends and family members ask you for tips and advice as they learn the sport you already love?


    The IMIC teaches you the proven methods and teaching techniques that will help every rider who is willing to learn. For those who take the course, it won't take long to see that even you will gain confidence and have better handling skills as you learn from one of the top mountain bike professionals in the world! Courses teach you how to "detect and correct" common riding/handling mistakes that can lean to crashes, endos and lack of confidence. The 1 and 3-day courses will give you the experience and backing to help others and promote the sport of mountain biking in your area!
