"Although I have been riding for several years, I had a ton of fun! I really got my groove back on my bike. I learned skills to help on climbs, to increase stability on descents, and to make riding downhill even more fun. The tips for cornering really helped too. The coaches were very knowledgeable and encouraging. Thanks Fernie Bike Guides"
