Minii Adventures Weeknight Skills Program - $250.00

Join Charlotte Batty of MINII ADVENTURES in a 6 week series of MINII MOUNTAIN BIKE CLINICS to better your riding! These CLINICS are for beginner/beginner-intermediate level riders looking to build their mountain biking foundation, ride safer and with confidence, and keep up with their kids! Tailored to accommodate a busy schedule, each week will progress through various skills, with demo and practice, followed by a trail ride for practical application. These rides will rotate between Durham Forest and Woodnewton Trail Heads to coincide with the Shredders schedule to allow parents to hone in on their skills while the kids are busy too. Clinics will be held Monday and Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
