GRIT Bike Clinic for Women





Cost $295
All levels, ages 18+

The Kingdom Trails have over 100 miles of interconnected mountain bike trails, mostly single track, traveling through pine forests, maple tree groves, alongside rivers, up and down hills and mountains. The views are majestic and often include wildlife. But it's the dirt that makes this place extra dreamy, we have great soil and drainage so the trails stay dry and tacky and there aren't a lot of rocks so much of the riding is smooth, fast and flowy. But you can find plenty of technical stuff too, climbs and descents. There's riding for every ability, from real beginner trails to gnarly downhill stuff. We will spend day one learning skills on the property with stunts and obstacles, then take it to the trails nearby. Day two we venture to Burke mountain where we practice what we learned in the morning and take it to the lift-assisted trails in the afternoon for some shreddy fun!
