The Burke Bike Park on Kingdom Trails is the portion of Kingdom Trails on Burke Mountain that is accessed by the ski lift. It is an awesome place to be introduced to downhill mountain biking OR to hone your already existing skills. Trails range from excavated rollers and berms to tight singletrack. Whether this is your first time in the park, or you've been there before and want to perfect your jumping skills, the sheRide coaches have got you covered.
This will be a fun filled day of female camaraderie and skill progression. We'll finish the day on the patio with beers, food and a video recap of the day.
Participants need to have some experience on a mountain bike and a desire to progress their skills on varying dowhhill terrain.
The cost is $85 which gives you a Kingdom Trails pass, Burke Bike Park lift ticket, 6 hours of instruction from 5 rad women, apres biking beer, and a video recap of the day. A portion of the proceeds also go to the non-profit SheJumps.org
