Join PMBIA certified mountain bike instructor, Carol Baldwin, on October 27, for a one-day (ladies only) beginner mountain bike skills clinic at Mulberry Gap.
Meet Your Instructor:
Carol was lured into the woods by ribbons of single track in the outskirts of Atlanta, GA in early 2011 and never looked back. After several years of riding with friends and learning from her mistakes on the trail, she took her first clinic with Ladies AllRide and couldn’t believe how much progress she made in one weekend of riding. She loved it so much that a few years later she got her PMBIA Level 1 coaching certification so she could spread the stoke and help others get rad on bikes. Carol’s goal in coaching is to help riders develop new skills that help them have more fun on their bikes.
In life outside the trail, Carol works as a camera assistant in the film industry and lives in Atlanta, GA with her boyfriend and two dogs. She’s happy to report that she no longer has more bikes than furniture in her house.
Come join PMBIA Level 1 Coach Carolyn Baldwin for a Women’s One Day Skills Clinic at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way. Participants will get a chance to work on the fundamentals of mountain biking and build their skills. Topics covered include body positioning, cornering, wheel lifts, climbing, descending, switchbacks, navigating obstacles, and more.
This clinic is geared towards newer riders with some biking experience under their belt as well as riders who have been at it for a while but are looking to build more confidence on the trail. If you consider yourself a beginner or advanced beginner, then this clinic is perfect for you!
The day will consist of a morning skills session, a lunch break, and an afternoon skills session to wrap things up. We’ll spend our whole day outside roaming around the Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way property. Due to the amount of material we will be covering, participants should expect to spend most of the day practicing off the trail. Make sure you bring a fully functioning bike, helmet, plenty of water, snacks, and be ready to have a great time!
