Following a brief assessment of skill, she'll be taking you through the basics of mountain biking - equipment, safety, trail etiquette, bike/body position, and riding skills, so that you will be ready for a fun weekend of bike skills, drills and guided trail rides. Her program is designed for beginners and advanced riders alike and she brings years of riding and instructing experience to the mix.

The Outpost by Valley Farm will cater breakfast and lunch each day and meal tickets will be provided for dinner at their restaurant location in Mt. Laguna which offers customized American favorites, a full bar with local craft selections, and specializes in BBQ/smoked meats. They'll have live music on Friday night for your entertainment featuring some of the best local artists around.

This is the first program of its kind on the mountain, bringing together glamping, mountain biking, great food and summer festival camp vibes. Spaces are limited so book now.
