Skills Clinics Overview

For those of you that just can't get a week off of work, Alison and the Alison Dunlap Adventure Camps offer one and two-day mountain bike skills clinics in Colorado Springs throughout the summer. If youíre tired of walking technical terrain, crashing, or getting left behind by your friends, consider letting us show you the core concepts and fundamentals of mountain biking. Depending on your ability level, you can learn how to ride over a six-inch curb or jump off a four-foot ledge; it's all up to you. The following skills will be covered in all clinics:

  • Core body positioning, balance, movement, and vision
  • Effective braking
  • Cornering
  • Line selection
  • Switchbacks
  • Steep climbing
  • Steep descending
  • Front wheel lift: curbs and ledges
  • Downhill ledges
All of our mountain bike clinics provide a yummy catered lunch, energy bars, and energy drink to all participants.

I just wanted to say thanks again for an awesome weekend. I definitely learned a lot and I really appreciate how thoughtful and encouraging you (and your crew) are with your coaching. I'm looking forward to getting some rides in this summer and hope to be ready for your intermediate clinic next year.
