Intermediate Clinic

Fluidride is now offering a 2-Day Intensive Weekend Clinic for Adults at Mulberry Gap!

This clinic will be geared toward Intermediate (+/-) riders who want to learn a mix of position, cornering, drops, jumps, steep descents, climbing techniques and a range of other skills. (This weekend will encapsulate our popular Trail Essentials and Air 101 classes, part of our Progressive Trail Skills class, along with skills elected by our group that weekend). Clinics will be held in the morning, with optional group rides in the afternoon.

The clinic includes two full days of instruction with Fluidride Owner Simon Lawton as well as riding snacks.

Class fee does not include meals and lodging at Mulberry Gap. Check out our availability below!
