About the Event
Let’s celebrate Women in outdoor spaces! This clinic is open to all levels of riders – we are creating an inclusive space for everyone to develop their skills & meet like minded individuals!
Through this two day clinic we will be covering bike handling skills, bike maintenance, and medical skills. You are welcome to attend just day one or both days.
The first day of the clinic (July 16th) will be focused on bike handling skills with certified bike instructors. The skills portion of the clinic will be from 9am-2pm in the area behind the Crested Butte Community School. After a deep dive on these skills, we will go on an optional group ride from 2:30-4:30. This ride will be split into ability levels & enable us to practice our new skills!
Day two of the clinic will be geared towards bike maintenance, trailside repairs, and medical skills. We will hold this clinic at the Irwin Guides headquarters (330 Belleview Ave.) starting at 8:30am. Each clinic will be a three hour segment with a break for lunch in between (12pm-1pm). Each person who attends the maintenance portion will receive a free bottle of Mountain Flow chain lube!
Ali Fuchs from Big Al’s Bicycle Heaven will be hosting the bike maintenance & trailside repairs portion of the clinic. Make sure to give your bike a nice wash before attending – it’s much easier to learn about your bike when it’s clean! Irwin Guides is partnering with Desert Mountain Medicine to provide high quality medical instruction. We are excited to contribute to our community through access to learning, developing skills, and meeting new people!
We will be hosting a raffle with some great prizes to benefit the Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association! Bring cash to purchase tickets & support CBMA!
