    Default Mountain Bike Skills Clinic

    I'm thinking about doing one. I could definitely use the help but it would also be to get away from the snow and cold for a few days. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Michaux mtb school is well regarded around here. It's in early April which normally means spring temperatures in south central PA.

    Thanks for the offer. Where are you? I don't make it to Kettle (more of a Palos guys) very often but that could change. Wisconsin doesn't really check the "get away from the snow for a few days" box.

    Sounds like I'd have to travel with my own bedding and it is a bit too far to drive.

    Barrington. We can put a nice Muir-connector-Emma loop together if you want to spend a day up there.

    Michaux Dirt School has some of the best instructors on the East Coast, one of them being Harlan Price.
    Harlan is conveniently located in Harrisonburg, VA if you want a private lesson somewhere soon. O

    +1 on Harlan ... He is quality people and can both handle a bicycle and can explain to you simply how to handle yours better.

    This is also what I heard from a pal who took the clinic and had Harlan for a 1 on 1 after.

    Bonus, the riding here is superb and you are likely cruise past cabana JoB and TooTall's trailer.
