*We offer Private Lessons for KIDS and ADULTS.
*Riders must be at least 7 years of age and older
*ABILITY LEVEL: Riders MUST BE very comfortable riding their bikes on the
pavement and shifing gears, because we do the lessons on the dirt. This is
for safety reasons. Riders must also be comfortable riding up to 6 miles
+. If in doubt about the ability level, practice more riding on the
pavement before booking a private lesson on the dirt.
*We do a lot of skills on the grass first; balance exercises, cornering
practice, front wheel lifts, rear wheel lifts, bunny hops, switchback
*We then go on a coached ride practicing these skills
*We use our BALANCE BOARD, TEETER TOTTER, and JUMP where appropriate
*COST: $60/hour ($10 extra per person beyond 1)
*We recommend 2 or 2 1/2 hours
*Maximum of 5 people per lesson
*Make sure if forming a group, that RIDERS ARE OF THE SAME ABILITY LEVEL
