This is gonna be fun. We’ll start with some meet’n greet – so we can learn about each other. This is a good time to assess your confidence and skills. We’ll talk about that stuff. From there, we’ll do a complete safety check on all our bikes. Same for PPE. I’ll introduce and demonstrate basic and intermediate mountain bike skills. You’ll have the opportunity to practice the skills. We’ll answer questions and goof around on our bikes. This is gonna be fun. I may even bring my ukulele or harmonica
