CALLING ALL FEMALE RIDERS! Gravity MTB is proud to team up with Mt. Washington Alpine Resort to offer a 2-day lift-accessed “Ladies Only” clinic at Vancouver Island’s mountain bike destination resort!
The clinic will be geared towards ladies who are new to the sport of mountain biking as well as experienced riders who are looking to improve their skills while experiencing the thrill of riding in a bike park. It will focus on our Green and entry-level Blue trails and teach basic skills such as body position, cornering, braking/accelerating, line choice, trail manoeuvres as well as Bike Park etiquette and safety.
The weekend will be made up of eight hours of professional instruction by our PMBIA-certified coaches as well as yoga/stretching sessions, scenic chairlift rides and optional hikes, and Disc/Mini Golf. Stunning views and a laid-back atmosphere with like-minded ladies paired with professionally maintained flowy trails and additional activities will make for a very memorable weekend!
SATURDAY Day 1 – Welcome & Intro to the Mt. Washington Bike Park!
Our clinic will kick off Saturday morning with check-in, and a light breakfast of coffee, tea and pastries in the Eagleview Bistro between 8:30 am and 9:30 am. This will be followed by a quick coach and participant “Meet and Greet” as well as group assignments for the weekend. We will then make our way to the top of the mountain via the Eagle Chair where our coaches will lead you in a morning yoga/stretch session (weather permitting). We’ll then split into pre-assigned groups and head out on the trails for some FUN!!
After shredding the trails, we’ll break for a bit of free time before meeting again at our host venue, the Eagleview Bistro, for a deliciously healthy and hearty dinner.
SUNDAY Day 2 – Conquering the Bike Park!
Breakfast is served once again in the Eagleview Bistro followed by another yoga/stretch session at the top of the Eagle Chair (weather permitting). Then it’s time to put our “Day 1” skills to use back on the trails and begin to hone in on specific areas.
Immediately after another successful day of riding, we’ll regroup in the Eagleview Bistro for refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres as well as some awesome giveaways before saying “See you later!”
