Host a Mountain Bike Skills Clinic at Your Bike Shop

Interested in hosting a mountain bike skills clinic at your local bike shop?

Hosting a mountain bike skills clinic is a great way to get some ‘zero-cost’ exposure to promote your shop.  We love it because it give us a home-base for our clinics and the riders love it because they’ve got a place to rent or demo a bike, pick up parts, accessories and check out new bikes.  It’s really a win-win-win.

Here’s an example of a clinic we are holding in January in Orange County hosted by a local bike shop, G2Bike…

We’ll write up your event press release and promote your hosted clinic via our email lists, website, Facebook, Twitter and more…  Also, we’ll provide you with a co-branded PDF flyer to use for creating an event on your Facebook page, for email blasts to your customers, etc. and we’ll send you a PDF poster you can print and post in your shop window.

Our reach in the mountain bike community is quite large with over 11,000 Twitter followers, over 1,000 Facebook Fans, an opt-in subscription list of over 14,000 cyclists and approximately 100 unique visitors per day to our website.  We’ll do our best to get the word out!

Here’s what you and your customers can expect from a typical full-day skills clinic.   We can easily add other skills, emphasize requested skills and adjust as required to cater your group’s specific needs…
