In addition to classroom sessions, On the Bike Skills (OTBS) 201 Training will be part of the curriculum. Attendees will need to bring their mountain bikes and helmets for this on-bike required skills training.  OTBS 201 offers progressions on the fundamental skills taught in OTBS 101.

This second skills clinic offers more advanced skills and progressions of the fundamentals which were taught in OTBS 101. These skills will offer you tools for working with your more riders and offering the next level of skills instruction.
