However, we structure our learning progressions to MINIMIZE YOUR CHANCES OF TAKING A TUMBLE OR CRASHING.

Taking a lesson is one of the best ways to progress as safely as possible!

YOU CAN MOUNTAIN BIKE IN THE PRAIRIES?

THAT'S RIGHT!

Prairie folk are known for doing a lot with the terrain we have! River valleys and some man-made hills are plentiful and provide a lot
of good trails and fun riding! It takes creativity but Saskatchewan has a community of trail stewards that will allow you many off-road
adventures on two wheels!
