Grit Clinics are back with weekly mountain bike lessons on Bend trails

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- As we get ready for summer in our hometown, we are excited to announce new weekly offerings from Grit Clinics Mountain Bike Skills in 2021 and beyond!


Join us in beautiful Bend, OR for one of our many weekly mountain bike skills sessions. These are a mix of two- or three-hour sessions (depending on the class description) where we'll focus on specific skills but cater to participant's goals and skill levels. Both men and women are welcome at these clinics.

One of our offerings is: Fridays - Happy Hour Trail Ride 'n Skills. Do you want to learn how to ride Bend trails better? Do you struggle with the loose, sandy corners? Are you ready to learn how to pump and jump? Do the rocks on COD have you squirming in your saddle? Are you ready to learn to go a little faster, safely?

Join Grit Clinics at a new trail each week to work on specific skills needed for the features you will encounter. We’ll tackle jumps and corners on Whoops, technical climbing and descending on Funner, swooping descents on Tiddlywinks and more! Our weekly trail choice will be determined ahead of time but may occasionally change based on trail conditions and weather. We will slow down and take a look at features and lines and get to know our trails a little more intimately. Finish off your week with a fun mountain bike lesson so you can shred with more confidence all weekend!

Whether you're visiting from out of town or you live in Bend, join us once or on a regular basis to gain new skills and confidence for your mountain bike journey!

Our flexible scheduling allows you to sign up far in advance or the day before. We are pretty excited to get this coaching party started!
