Burning Bike Skills Weekend
September 19 @ 9:00 am - September 20 @ 4:00 pm
$120 – $225
Experience the laidback community of Arrowhead Bike Farm and the beautiful New River Gorge mountain biking trails!
Enjoy one or two days of riding, building up your mountain biking skills, and meeting other mountain bikers. This weekend is for beginner to intermediate mountain bikers looking to improve their skills while having fun. Saturday night we will be having an optional Bike Maintenance Workshop followed by our Burning Bike bonfire party! We are keeping the group size small so we can provide the best individual instruction so we encourage you to take the opportunity to sign up! Sign up before August 31st to receive a discount on registration using promo code EARLY10.
We will spend Saturday strengthening our fundamental riding skills, and as the day continues, start challenging ourselves with new skills like wheel lifts. We will wrap up Saturday with a beautiful ride to one of the most scenic vistas in the New River Gorge. On Sunday we will jump back into skills practice focusing on pumping, high-speed cornering, and riding skinny features.
Our professional instructors will be able to work with the riding level of the group to ensure all riders will progress throughout the weekend. We will wrap up with a group ride on the best trails in Appalachia, according to Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine; The Arrowhead Trails. It is our goal to foster a sense of confidence and community through mountain biking and we want you to be a part of it!
