On this course we repeat and practice skills on man-made trails before we go for a half day trip on natural trails in the highlands.
Skill training - 10.00-12.30 (please be on time)
Focus on general skills (position, balance, absorbing/ pumping terrain)
SkiGeilo sponsers us with a chairlift ticket so we can ride the new flowtrail together.
Lunch: 12.30 – 14.00 Time for individual lunch arrangements (you can order food at the restaurant at Vestlia Resort)
Guided half-day trip:14.00 – 19.00. Trail ride. The trip runs on rocky and partially wet trails above treeline (intermediate level) and includes a fair bit of uphill. We are not in a hurry, will wait for everybody and take everybody's needs and different abilities into consideration. Riding trails with a group means there will be a lot of stop-and-go and chatting on the way. Make sure you bring enough clothing to keep warm!
If the weather turns really bad we'll find a less exposed route. Worst case scenario is that we stay in Geilo and ride/ practise on man-made trails.
Nina Gässler is a certified instructor for NMIG (Norwegian Mountainbike Instructor and Guide).
Nina believes that learning and practicing (new) skills works best in a positive, including and supporting environment. No stress, no pressure, no unachievable demands. This is why we organize this as a "women only course".
Please note: You need a mountain bike in good condition (you need to be able to lower the seat), helmet, clothing according to the weather, enough to eat and drink during the lesson/guided tour.
Note: only 10 spaces available per course.
