Ladies Mountain Bike Clinic with Sue Haywood & Shanna Powell - Fall

Head Instructor: Sue Haywood

Sue Haywood is an IMBA certified mountain bike skills instructor that specializes in mastery of East Coast riding conditions. Sue has honed her skills on the wet roots and big rocks in her home state of West Virginia. She enjoys teaching women and seeing her students gain skills, efficiency and confidence. In this clinic you will learn to ride in balance with good body position, effective braking techniques, lift your front wheel, ride over logs, conquer switchbacks and more! 

"A great way to improve your riding is to take a clinic and ride with an experienced coach like myself. Taking 2-3 clinics and classes a year is the way to keep progressing in the sport of mountain biking. Whether you are a racer or not, the more you can ride in balance and efficiently makes riding more fun. I really like the set-up at Mulberry Gap for skills and drills practice and then practicing those skills on the trail. Being in the beautiful mountains of Georgia at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way, with friendly people and good food makes it really fun and easy to learn." - Sue Haywood

Assistant Instructor: Shanna Powell

Shanna loves riding bikes. She rides every bike she can every place she can, because each one teaches a different technique, style or maneuver... “but I am a singlespeeder at heart.” Riding bikes has given her the opportunity and reason to travel to many new places and meet many new faces. She has been riding bikes since 2006 everywhere she can. Shanna rides bikes because bikes are fun and she loves sharing adventures on bikes with others. Some of the best experiences she has had in life have been with awesome bike people riding bikes in amazing places. Shanna loves riding new trails. “Riding has been such a beautiful part of my life.” Shanna has recently stepped back into teaching… she has a degree in recreation and parks management and through that has spent time in a different life chapter as a kayak instructor. Shanna has recently acquired her PMBI Level 1 instructor certification and is very excited to share her love of riding through teaching. Shanna is also the owner of EndlessBikeCo.
