Freeplay Mountain Bike Escapes & Clinics

Granite Bay

If you are looking to improve your mountain bike skills for spring and summer riding or planning to sign up for one of numerous mountain bike races offered by TBF Racing in Granite Bay this is the perfect clinic for you!

The Granite Bay half-day skills clinic starts with a small group skills session before riders hit the trails for a coached ride. Riders of all levels are encouraged to attend. Riders will be group by skill and coaches will differentiate instruction based on the needs of the riders. Beginner and intermediate coached rides available.

When: April 29, 2017 at 10am-2pm
Where: Folsom Bike (7610 Folsom-Auburn Rd. #100 Folsom, Ca 95630)
Cost: $50 (Includes: Skills session, coached ride, goodie bag, t-shirt and post-ride snacks & mingling)

All riders will warm-up together from Folsom Bike to Cavitt Middle School where the skills sessions will take place. After the skills session, riders will break into groups and head out with a coach for the ride. Routes will vary depending on the level of each group. All riders will meet back at Folsom Bike for post-ride refreshments and Q&A.

Trail Description: The well maintained flowing single track trail has banked corners and not a lot of rocks which makes climbing and downhills fast and fun. There are several short technical areas of granite slabs and rock gardens for those looking to challenge themselves. Not ready for rock gardens…don’t worry there are plenty of other options available!
