Are you ready to take your mountain biking to the next level, literally?

Jumping your mountain bike is NOT as simple as Ready. Set. JUMP!

Learning how to safely and successfully jump (and land) your mountain bike involves a range of key components and constantly changing variables.¬† Join us as we take you through a series of progressions that will help you understand¬†all the components that come together to create a successful jump.¬† We’ll start with basic wheel lifts, manuals and bunny hops and work our way up to weighting and un-weighting over a jump.¬† From there, we’ll review the anatomy of a jump, discuss varied landings and practice using compression for height and distance.¬†¬† Then we will be ready to get jumping!

All training is done in a controlled environment, either on an appropriate feature (table top) on the local trails or using manufactured jump ramps.

By the end of this clinic, our goal is to have you successfully clearing a 4-5 foot jump (approximately 2 feet in the air) and landing safely and predictably.  Participants are encouraged to learn at their own pace in this un-intimidating environment.  You will leave this clinic well on your way to jumping mastery Рwith a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of jumping your bike and a clear idea of what and how to practice!

Come jump with us – sign up today!
