Trail Essentials Group instruction

Our Trail Essentials class offers riders the chance to work in a small group format with Fluidride Owner Simon Lawton. Riders will learn the proper body position and cornering techniques to flow on your bike like never before. This is a great way to enhance your riding experience. You will come out of this 2-hour class a whole new rider, and meet other riders to share future riding and instructional opportunities with. All ability levels welcome! Many riders take this class more than once to further hone cornering skills. You can't be too good at cornering!

AIR TIME 101: Improve your jumping

Many riders have asked for help with improving their jumping, so we've put together a class that focuses on proper form for drops, jumps and featuring (getting air off natural terrain).

All jumps will be table tops – no doubles in this class. While we won’t be riding black diamond trails, even advanced riders will benefit from this class. This class can be taken more than once. Riders should be comfortable jumping basic table top jumps consistently before heading for Air 201.
