More Info & Requirements

All participants must bring a trail-worthy bicycle, a helmet in good condition, and plenty of water.  Beginners are strongly encouraged to use flat pedals.

A charitable / tax deductible contribution ($30 Individual / $ 50 Family) to the Trail Spinners includes the following:

+ Intro to Mountain Biking with fundamental skills training
+ Free access to intermediate skills training during the season
+ Free 1 Year IMBA membership
+ Free 1 Year Dirt Rag digital subscription
+ VIP pricing on a new Subaru

All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver. Participants under 18 years old will need a parent or guardian signature on the waiver. Families with children between 10 and 16 years old must participate together including the trail ride.

These are fair-weather events and may be canceled due to poor trail conditions.  Please pre-register so we can provide cancelation notification if necessary.

You must pre-register for a course by sending an e-mail to mb101@trailspinners.org

Locations may require either an annual pass or a daily parking fee.  Locations are subject to change.

To take a skills course other than an introduction course, you must pass a mountain bike skills test at the beginning of the skills course.  Every rider must be able to demonstrate the fundamental skills that are taught in every Introduction to Mountain Biking Course.

Mountain Biking requires a certain level of fitness and skill to practice safely. You will be learning about both of these requirements and experiencing both during a course. To become more proficient in both riding skill and fitness, Trail Spinners offer weekly rides at both Fair Hill and White Clay Creek.
