Mountain bike skills require more than bicycle balance and pedaling. Learn about equipment, gears, body placement, bike control and more. The more you know the more fun you have. Our classes are sure to give you the skills you need to get to the next level.

Look for official Yahoo! Group announcements or check the Ride and Events Calendar for scheduled training dates.

Ride Guide Program / Ride Guide Training Class

You've been riding with the club for a while and you're getting to know the trails pretty well. What's next, you ask? Become a ride guide! It's just as fun as riding (maybe more so since you get to be in front) and a great way to help your fellow Swampers learn the trails.

Contact Kenny Dixon at RideGuide (at) SWAMPClub (dot) org, he will help get you started.
