You asked for it so you got it! Come join us at the Cypresswood trail located in Collins Park on Saturday November 10th at 10:00am for our GHORBA Beginners Skills Clinic sponsored by Bike Barn –Champions!! We’ve been hard at work creating our new skills clinics and we figured the best place to start was...well, at the beginning! If you’ve just bought your first mountain bike or have been riding for less than a year then these classes are perfect for you. Let us help you get started or give you the extra skills you need to move up to the next level. Our instructors have been teaching people how to mountain bike a long, long time and now it’s your turn to learn from these professionals! Don’t miss out!

Our sponsor, Bike Barn – Champions will have mechanics on duty to check out your bike before we start the clinic and will do so free of charge! Make sure you arrive early to take advantage of this excellent service. Please make sure you take the time to thank the employees of Bike Barn for volunteering their time and expertise for our clinic. Of course the best way to thank them is to visit their shop which is located a stone’s throw away from the Cypresswood trail at 6935 Cypresswood Dr. Whether you’re a mountain biker or a road biker (Yuck!) they’re a one stop shop for everything cycling.

We will be offering two classes at this clinic:
