Mountain Biking Training Sessions

Posted by Paul Taylor on May 25, 2012

Is your Mountain Bike growing dusty in the garage or seeing too much pavement? Want to learn how and where to ride a Mountain Bike in Michiana?

The Northern Indiana Mountain Bike Association (NIMBA) is holding free “Intro to Mountain Biking” sessions at each of the 4 trails that it maintains. Each session will include a discussion and demonstration of basic Mountain Biking skills followed by a guided ride on the trail where we will put the skills to use and review features of the trail.

What do you need to participate?

  • Bike Helmet
  • Mountain Bike that has brakes and gears in good working order
  • A desire to have fun

The sessions are geared for beginner adult Mountain Bikers, but teens can also attend with an adult. They will be held from 9:30AM – Noon EDT at these locations:

  • 6-16-12 Potato Creek State Park – Peppermint Hill Parking Area
  • 7-14-12 Rum Village Park, South Bend – Nature Center Parking Lot
  • 8-11-12 Bendix Woods County Park – Otahnagon Picnic Area
  • 8-25-12 TK Lawless County Park (MI) – Main Parking Lot

Attend one, or attend them all!  Please RSVP by sending an email to NIMBA.BIKE@GMAIL.COM.
