Description

***UPDATE***

Conditions are pretty rough on the course, and we don't anyone getting hurt, so unfortunately this ride has been cancelled.


Looking to improve your MTB skills? Well then join REI for their Urban Skills Session!

The Atlanta area is home to hundreds of miles of singletrack with a lot of unique and challenging mountain biking terrain from big rock ledges to loose singletrack. Using a former apartment complex, REI will provide detailed breakdowns of riding skills along with a progression of drills to help you improve your performance.

If you've been mountain biking for a while and are eager to improve your trail riding ability on trails, this is the class for you.

Specific topics include:

  • Braking
  • Climbing
  • Descending
  • Tight Turns
  • Cornering
  • Wheel Lifts

This event is Limited and conducted by REI so follow the link below to learn more and sign up!

REI Urban Skills Classes Sign Up

Bikes and helmets are available for students if needed, but bringing your own well-tuned bike is highly recommended for skills retention after the class. This course is intended for experienced riders with at least a season of off-road riding experience. The venue is not on singletrack trails, but simulates the terrain to help you learn the skills you need in a truly surprising locale.

Come for the class and then hang around for the opening of the ACF 2019 Bike Park which will be in the same location!
