MBU volunteers at the Advanced Skills Clinic

By Danusia Bennett-Taber

On March 20 CORBA hosted a special session of our Mountain Bike Skills Clinic program. CORBA president and skills clinic instructor Mark Langton offered this session to Mountain Bike Unit volunteers and class of 2010 recruits.

The class was held in the beautiful setting of Malibu Creek State Park. Sixteen MBUers participated. As at CORBA’s regularly scheduled Free Mountain Bike Skills Clinics for the general public, Mark was assisted by Ezra, a member of MBU. 

During the four hour session the MBU volunteers practiced riding over obstacles, climbing and descending steep hills, riding over rocks and ruts, and riding stairs. Finally, they had some fun learning how to do wheelies. Check out the event pictures.

This was the first of two sessions offered by Mark Langton and CORBA to MBU. If you are an MBU member or class of 2010 recruit, mark your calendar:  the next session is on April 21.

The next Free Mountain Bike Skills Clinic open to the general public is this coming Saturday, April 3 at 8:30 AM, also at Malibu Creek State Park. Check the CORBA calendar for more details.
