- Functioning bike and a willingness to fail in front of others for the sake of learning

- A smile when you do something that you didn't think you could.

level: Any
- We welcome beginners for the re-start of the series. All activities are optional and within your comfort level, with discouragement of any peer pressure (but plenty of encouragement where needed!)

Session objectives:
We will focus on bike control over technical terrain (roots and rocks). We will work on some steering exercises before taking to the trail for ~2 miles of practice including some light climbing.

Not covered:
- I am the last person you want to ask for mechanical or bike setup questions, I will let your local friendly bike shop assist with that
- This time we aren't into the sessions that will cover the wooden features or jumps that Yudicky is known for, keep your eye out for future sessions for that

Join us for our GB NEMBA Monday Night Practice Your Technique (PYT) Ride Sponsored by JRA Cycles

This ride is open to NEMBA Members and non-members.  Please sign our waiver (once a year!): https://smartwaiver.com/splash/17029
 

This is a skills based ride, all levels certainly welcome! We try to focus on what the group wants to improve upon. Begin by asking for suggestions from the group if there's something specific that people want to focus on, but have a bunch of drills we like to work on. Cornering, body position and wheel lifts are always big points we try to touch on. Any level really can benefit from taking time to slow down a little and dial in their technique!

Join us for our GB NEMBA Monday Night Beginner/Novice Ride - learn the basics of mtb in a welcoming, fun, encouraging group.

It is going to be a blast to get out in small groups and teach body positioning, braking, shifting, picking a line, small features, and trail etiquette. One step to riding bliss:

1. Sign our online waiver: https://nemba.org/waiver

More details:

Come learn the basic skills to ride singletrack! We will be teaching bike handling, shifting, body position, basic trail skills and basic trailside bike maintenance in a relaxed and supportive setting.

What to bring:
1. Bike with fat tires (2" or over)
2. Helmet (required)
3. Shoes suitable for riding your bike (no sandals, flip-flops or other open-toed shoes)
4. Water
5. You!

Instruction will be by GBNEMBA's experienced Ride Guides in a supportive, fun environment.

Ride format will *always* be no-drop, very casual pace (Note: this is not a recovery or rest ride for you experienced MTBrs - this is an instructional ride format for new riders). We'll have plenty of opportunity to practice what we learn as we go along! Please be ready to ride by 6:00pm, ride will leave the lot by 6:15pm.

Please note: This is an 18 and older ride. The ride format is aimed at adults - please see our Kids Ride series for rides appropriate for kids and teens. Thanks!

Weather Policy: Rain cancels this ride - chance of a rain shower does not.

To speed up the ride check-ins, please sign the NEMBA Waiver in advance: https://www.nemba.org/waiver

Directions: Park at the Lone Tree Hill parking lot, 295 MIll St., Belmont

Remember to always be an ambassador for our sport! Best practices include:

  • Slow down when you see other riders, hikers, or animals.

  • Pass other trail users at about their speed - be courteous and talk to them

  • Ride through the center of a mud patch or puddle, NOT around it.

  • Ride over an obstacle, NOT around it.

  • If you can't ride over an obstacle, get off and walk it - stay on the trail.

  • Do not make new routes or trails.

  • Do not build stunts.

  • Do not skid, spin out, or fishtail - uphill nor downhill.

  • Always offer to yield the right of way.

  • Be friendly - say hi to other trail users!
