2019-08-14 17:00:00 2019-08-14 20:00:00 America/Vancouver Live to Ride Mountain Bike Program LIVE TO RIDE Mountain Biking Our Live to Ride program was the second program added to our mix back in 2009. With a number of changes made to the program over the years, we believe it is now one of the best programs available in the Valley to introduce someone to the sport of mountain biking. Live to Ride Mountain Biking With a maximum of 12 participants in the program, we start on day one teaching the basics of how to mountain bike: pedaling, braking, and body position all in a flat ground session so that each rider can get comfortable on the bike before even having to worry about going down a hill. Once the participants have these skills dialed in we advance through a progression of terrain and trail choices so that participants skills can progress each ride. With a lesson to start off each ride, delivered by a PMBI certified instructor, the skill sets required to ride more advanced terrain are built up over the program as each rider’s confidence increases. Riders are exposed to a variety of trail types from cross country to lift assisted downhill riding (in some programs) with the ability break into smaller groups to ensure each rider is on terrain and moving at a pace they are comfortable with. This allows for a more comfortable learning environment as each rider will become comfortable with different terrain and pace on their own terms. Included in the program we do our best to introduce the participants to an array of industry related jobs in an effort to expand the participants’ horizons. We have our PMBI instructor speak with the participants about the opportunities available as a mountain bike instructor in the area. We also have a day where a local bike shop provides one of their staff for a lesson on the basics of bike maintenance. The shop staff member also speaks about the types of roles available in the retail industry that supports mountain biking. In an effort to make the sport even more accessible Elevation Outdoors provides transportation from 3 common meeting points in Kelowna and West Kelowna to make it easier for participants to join us. Dates: Each program runs twice per week, for 7 weeks, as the frequency is key to the progression of the participants’ skills as it allows them to return and practice their skills and continue to improve as there is not enough time to regress between sessions. Live to Ride 2019 will run from July 8th - August 22nd. We will take the youth riding every Monday and Wednesday afternoon (and one Thursday all day), during this time. Pricing: Each seat is $450. * 100% and partial scholarship seats are available for youth that meet our eligibility criteria! Elevation Outdoors 1633 Richter St events@kelownanow.com
