Levels Guide

Mountain Bike

Mountain Bike Ages 6+ - Level 1

Not offered in Spring/Summer 2021. 

Mountain Bike Ages 6+ - Level 2

Pedal unassisted and perform a controlled stop using handbrakes on smooth terrain. Level 2 is for anyone who can ride on pavement and is ready to bike on uneven terrain such as grass or dirt and learn how to correctly change gears. Introduction to all aspects of mountain biking happens at this level.

Mountain Bike Ages 6+ - Level 3

Ride on gentle off-road conditions and handle small obstacles such as rocks and roots. Maintain control and speed on green terrain. Level 3 will continue developing and introducing mountain bike skills where riders take on new challenges and experiment with creative tactics on green terrain.

Mountain Bike Ages 6+ - Level 4

Increase comfort and get adventurous on off-road terrain while riding at higher speeds.  Confidently control speed,  develop a more aggressive riding technique and take on terrain. We will introduce skill-based maneuvers such as front/rear wheel lifts, bunny hops and introduce some small trail features.  Green and blue terrain should be a comfortable experience by now.

Mountain Bike Ages 6+ - Level 5

Ride in a standing "ready" position on blue or easier black terrain. Focus is on braking efficiently to maintain speed in corners and technical sections, and pressure control to generate speed. Skills introduced in level 4 are refined in level 5 including proper positioning over small jumps or features, maneuvers such as a bunny hop, and distinguishing a fast and safe line choice in technical sections.
