Intermediate - Advanced Clinic

This clinic is ideal for women who mountain bike regularly (10-15 miles 2-3x/week) and want to hone their skill set. Emphasis is on proper body position to suit the terrain, techniques to make single track riding safer, more fun, more efficient and increase confidence. This clinic will go over the fundamentals and specific maneuvers like wheel lifts, cornering, and switchbacks. While the skill portion is more suited for all, the on trail riding portion requires fitness enough to ride in the mountains. If you have decent bike fitness, want to dial in and learn new skills and enjoy the company of other women who ride, this is a great opportunity for you. Shanna has lots of experience teaching other women (as well as men) and continually seeks to improve her skills as a rider and instructor so you can learn better. She is also an amazing rider herself but has a relaxed, laid-back approach to shredding and teaching.

In summary, you should have a strong baseline fitness, willingness to learn and experiment all while having lots and lots of FUN!

Instructor: Shanna Powell

Shanna loves riding bikes and rides every bike she can every place she can, because each one performs skills and maneuvers in slightly different ways. Shanna also takes skills clinics every chance she can. There is just so much to learn and we can always ride better! She would also rather be rad than fast if she had to choose one. 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 everywhere since 2006. 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 like Mulberry Gap. “Riding has been such a beautiful, empowering part of my life.”  Shanna has recently completed her PMBI Level 2 and BICP Level 2 Skills Instructor certifications and is very excited to share her love of riding through teaching. Shanna is the owner of EndlessBikeGirl MTB Skills, LLC, EndlessBikeCo and Mountain Air Roasting.
