What you'll do
We will start with the fundamentals of bike body separation on the trails of sunny San Diego. We will move through core drills that help with confidence, control and bike safely. Cornering will be the focus during the core drills. These drills can be escalated to accommodate intermediate to advanced rides. After a quick break we will climb 1,500ft to the top of Black Mountain and take in the views of the area with the ocean in the distance. From there we will head back to where we started through a series on single track and mountain terrain. If your schedule allows we will have lunch at a local brewery or sandwich joint in the area. *lunch not included. Electric assist mountain bikes (EMTB) are only available when booking a private clinic and tour.
Over 20 years of experience from Cross Country to Downhill racing. I truly enjoy sharing my passion for mountain biking. Early in my professional career I owned and operated a small online bike shop based out of Santa Rosa California. During that time I actively raced Downhill winning notable events in California, Nevada, Washington, Idaho and Montana. As my career in mountain biking progressed I raced independently and for grassroots teams traveling the western United States racing every circuit possible. My passion to share my knowledge with others as mountain biking played a large part in my life. The hope is to shed just a bit more light on how mountain biking safely and with confidence can improve your next big mountain bike adventure.
