Mountain Bike Skills Weekend

Hosted by COGGS 


Learn the skills you need to ride more confidently, efficiently, and safely. And have a blast doing it!


Friday June 14 through Sunday June 16, 2019


Do you want to gain more confidence riding downhill? Do you want to learn what it feels like to “flow” on a flow trail? How about climbing uphill more efficiently? Maybe you just want to stay upright on your bike?? If you answered yes to any of these questions then we have THE weekend experience for you!
