Fat Bike Basics are for those who want to try a fat bike and learn basic skills.

We will go over things like balance, braking, cornering, the differences of a fat bike compared to a mountain bike climbing and descending and more.  A flat warm boot that will work on flat pedals is a must, a helmet and warm winter wear are also musts.  Layers of clothing are recommended.  Snow pants are doable but a more flexible winter tight is recommended.  The location will be chosen according to snow and weather conditions.

Chocolate or Cheese Fondue add on:  An outdoor setting at Country Encounter Wine Bar we will be served a take out Fondue lunch, your choice of Chocolate, $15 per person, or Cheese $15 per person.  It would happen after the lesson and add on approximately an hour of time.
