WHAT DO I BRING TO THE COURSE?:

  • Your bike & your riding gear (Either ride up and arrive between 8am & 9am or drive up with your bike loaded to your vehicle)
  • Plenty of questions, an expectation of exceeding your comfort zones and positive “Can Do” attitude.

(Throughout the day, if there is anything you don’t want to do or we don’t want you to do, you won’t be forced or coerced to do so. We will continuously assess your skill level and encourage you to get the most out of your riding but your safety is our #1 priority.)
