You'll learn shifting, braking, body position, basic safety and trail etiquette on a closed skills course, and then hit the trails for a group ride. Small group sizes and experienced instructors will ensure you leave the program with the skills you need to ride the trails on your own.

  • All programs are held at Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area.
  • Prior mountain biking experience isn't necessary, as long as you know how to ride a bike on pavement.
  • $30 adult, $15 youth (ages 10-18).
  • For ages 10 and older.
  • Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • One-day vehicle permits ($7 value) are included with all I Can Mountain Bike! programs where a permit is required.
