MTB skills courses
JoyRide offers mountain bike skills courses for women.
focusses on a different element of trail riding. We believe the best way
to learn to mountain bike is to mountain bike. So our skills courses are
a bit different…we go for a ride, stop at various points along the way
for a chat. We demonstrate a specific skill, then give you a chance to
try it out in the next section.
Each course is limited to six ladies (1:6 instructor ratio).
Costs: $125 or $105 for Revolve Members.
