Mountain Bike Instructional Clinics at the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge

A coach gives pointers on the proper technique for riding berms.

The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge has partnered with Brooks Adventures for 2 weekend mountain bike instructional clinic during the summer of 2023:

June 9-11          |          August 25-27

These clinics focus on mountain bike fundamentals and are designed for beginners or intermediates looking for a refresher on core skills. The curriculum is designed for adults, participants must be 16 years old. Women, men or couples are all encouraged to sign up.

Each day will be broken into morning and afternoon sessions. Morning sessions are drills based, focusing on fundamental skills. Afternoon sessions are mountain bike rides where participants have a chance to practice the skills from the morning session. 

Coaches have participants practice fundamental skills in a flat area before heading out on the trails.
